Knocking down XML and XHTML mythologies
17:30, 20 Mar 2000 UTC | Simon St.Laurent

CIOL has posted "'XHTML is a revolution' and other myths exploded", while Graydon Hoare has posted a rant pointing out that XML documents don't solve problems by themselves.

Debunking myths related to XML appears to be a popular project lately, as Ron Bourret's Namespace Myths Exploded article and Matthew Gertner's Change the W3C rant (which opens with a comparison to Star Wars) demonstrate.

Perhaps the XML hype engine is finally slowing down a little. XHTML is in a very different situation, with almost no hype so far. Rather than having to battle hype, the CIOL article clears away some of the fear, uncertainty and doubt surrounding the standard.
