Subject: Re: Ruby in RELAX NG a:documentation (fwd)

Message text written by James Clark
>Imagine writing a GUI for 
editing RELAX NG schemas: how is it going to be able to display the 
comments in a useful way unless it knows what the subelements mean? <


This is one of the strengths of XML!  The self-describing tags.

A generic Comment processor can easily parse this stuff so

       <FUG>more foo bar</FUG>

is displayed as  :

 CopyRight :  foobar 
 FUG:               more foo bar


It is only human readable stuff after all - not like its control
statements et al.   Generic editors like XMLSpy already handle
this handily - hsowing tag / content in edit mode.

Thanks, DW.
