Subject: Introduce UOML TC and invitation to our phone meeting


Dear Sir or Madam:
My name is Allison Shi, am a member of OASIS UOML TC which started running 
early this year. We just had our 5th meeting two weeks ago. Here I like to 
give you a brief introduction about our UOML, and invite anyone who are 
interested in joinning our meeting. The meeting usually holds in the third 
week of each month.
UOML is short for Unstructured Operation Markup Language; it describes an 
interface for digital document, including protocols, schemas, data formats 
and their encoding. We consider UOML to digital documents the same way as 
SQL to database. SQL’s development and implementation had helped database 
industry getting rid of the complicated operations, allowed different 
companies using SQL to operate data which stored in database. UOML is able 
to play the same role to the overwhelming unstructured digital documents. In 
order to reach our goal, we need help from all the people, especially Open 
Document society, because UOML and ODF can compliment each other.
UOML and ODF are both standards for unstructured digital document, but they 
focus on different sectors. ODF describes documents before publish, and UOML 
describes published document. ODF is a formatting standard to document 
before it published, it deals with single document; UOML is an interface 
standard to operate documents database, organize and manage a bunch of 
documents. Therefore UOML and ODF can be reciprocal to each other for 
unstructured digital document’s interoperability.
Furthermore, UOML can be the solution for people using Microsoft Word and 
ODF to exchange documents. For example, using Microsoft Word with the help 
of a free UOML writer, user can save the document to an UOML file type. An 
OpenOffice.org based word processor, which also support UOML, such as 
Redflag’s RedOffice (http://www.ch2000.com.cn/english/index.htm) can fully 
access this document, add and comment on it.
We are a huge fan of Open Document Format, and knowing each of you guys is 
the true force behind opening standard; we would like to seek your help to 
reach our goal. If you have any more questions regarding UOML, please feel 
free to send me emails or login to OASIS website UOML TC site:

Alliance website: http://www.uoml.org/.
Thanks for your time, and have a good day. Anyone who like to join our next 
phone meeting, please let me know so I can arrange for you.
Best regards,
