Or perhaps people and companies could begin thinking about
their data as the important piece of writing and editing, rather than being
driven by what a particular software tool can do. Then the focus would be
where it belonged, on the information that one is trying to convey; well-
structured and designed information could then be used, re-used, printed,
displayed, moved to a database, or anything else you wanted to do with it,
with the only software question being "which tool does what I need done
right now the best?" -- the data could remain pristine ... in other words,
think SGML!
