Re: XBL is (mostly) W3C redundant, and CSS is wrong W3C layer for semantic behavior *markup

I am searching the to see if I can find a definition of "semantics"
that relates to specifications.

So far no concise definition found.

I did find something related to semantics from Tim Berners-Lee on goals of
Semantic Web:

"Each field had made certain ___CENTRALIST__ assumptions -- if not in the
philosophy, then in the implementations, which __PREVENTED__ them from
spreading globally...We __REMOVE__ the __CENTRALIZED__ concepts of absolute
truth, total knowledge, and total provability..."

"The __PROBLEM___ with all such systems was that they were conceptually or
physically __CENTRALIZED__. They required link __GLOBAL__ __CONSISTENCY___."

So what Tim Berners-Lee is saying is same as what I am saying, which is
that you can not centralize semantics.

Ian, there are the references you requested to refute your concept of

I will look for more...
