Sometimes microblogging questions require macroblogging answers. Here’s the conversation:
@arh: Did @hixie really call XML a “disaster”? Is #techcomm aware of this? http://html5doctor.com/interview-with-ian-hickson-html-editor/
@mbakeranalecta: @arh XML is a disaster. Bad implementation of an essential concept. So is QWERTY. So it goes.
@arh: @mbakeranalecta Generally agreed. What concerns me are the #techcomm folks who think XHTML is “the future”.
@mbakeranalecta: @arh If people don’t see the value in making content mutable and addressable, then presentation formats are all they care about.
