Subject:Evolution of HTML? From:Tomohiro Hori <thori001 -at- ACS -dot- BU -dot- EDU> Date:Wed, 1 Nov 1995 23:29:34 -0500
Today I attended an interesting tutorial titled 'How SGML and HTML
Fit Together' at the Internet World '95 Boston. It was presented by
Eric Severson from Interleaf Inc.
From the lecture, I felt that understanding the philosophy of SGML
would make a great difference in the long run, even if you are writing
only HTML documents right now. In a broad sense, it may include an issue
of how you manage information on database, web sites or even on your PCs.
So, I want to know more about SGML. Could anyone recommend a readable,
understandable book about basics of SGML? I know there were some
discussions about SGML and HTML in this list before, but I missed
them. Sorry for any redundancy I am producing.
And if anyone who attended the presentation today at World Trade Center
Boston is reading this article, I would appreciate any commnent about
the tutorial. I thought it was very nice(a little bit expensive, though).
