TechWhirl (TECHWR-L) is a resource for technical writing and technical communications professionals of all experience levels and in all industries to share their experiences and acquire information.
For two decades, technical communicators have turned to TechWhirl to ask and answer questions about the always-changing world of technical communications, such as tools, skills, career paths, methodologies, and emerging industries. The TechWhirl Archives and magazine, created for, by and about technical writers, offer a wealth of knowledge to everyone with an interest in any aspect of technical communications.
If the document/information structure model of XML produced in FM is
different from the model used in Word (as the current binary formats are)
then it will be no simpler to share information. Unless both parties are
using the SAME XML implementation. At which point virtually all
extensibility and openness are lost
but... isn't the advantage that you can make the DTD / Schema
available to anyone you want to be able to talk to?
(I understand the point that XML is not a language, but a metalanguage;
but that's precisely its usefulness isn't it?)
