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.

OK, that is fair enough if the XML and source GIFs are to be consumed
and displayed in a home-grown application. However, if you are
producing HTML, HTML Help, or another common online delivery format
which is compiled by/into or displayed by technology you have not
yourself invented, this is a non-issue.
I guess we need more info as to what's being done with the XML.
