7:00 Vendor Demonstration: Kent Summers, EBT
Start off the New Year with lessons on the web -- the World Wide Web, that
is. At the January meeting of the SGML Forum of New York, Joe Schneider
of Hal Computer Systems will explain how the Web works. SGML is already
playing a vital role in the form of HTML (HyperText Markup Language), the
lingo that Web browsers speak. SGML is going to become even more critical
to the WWW in the years to come and Joe will offer his observations on
where he expects things to go. We plan to have a live line in place so expect
to see the Web in action.
For our vendor demonstration, Joe will show Hal's OLIAS as a Web client, and
Kent Summers of Electronic Book Technologies, Inc. (EBT) will demonstrate
their product DynaWeb as the server. Everyone acknowledges that one of
the weaknesses of the WWW is HTML itself. DynaWeb enables real-time
conversion of robust SGML-encoded documents into HTML on the fly, as
they are "fed to the Web." With DynaWeb, you can make a variety of SGML
documents available for on a web server without having to "dumb them
If you think HTML is neat, come to our February 14th meeting when Steven
Newcomb of TechnoTeacher will explain HyTime, the SGML-based language
for encoding hypermedia. Dr. Charles Goldfarb has proclaimed HyTime "the
future of SGML." Come to our February meeting and learn why.
