Create an RDF Site Summary (RSS) 0.9 file that describes your content." See description and references in a separate document. In early January 1999, a W3C Working Draft for the Document Object Model (DOM) Level 2 Specification Version 1.0 (WD-DOM-Level-2-19981228) was released.
It "defines the Document Object Model Level 2, a platform- and language-neutral interface that allows programs and scripts to dynamically access and update the content, structure and style of documents.
The NOTE also includes an SGML declaration which describes the constraints of XML applicable to an SGML parser. It is also to be expected that some early XML/XLink/XSL applications may be merely demonstrations, toys, proof-of-concept applications; still others might be naive or ill conceived.
[local archive copy] [This paragraph is superseded by the technical NOTE 'NOTE-sgml-xml' referenced immediately above.] Features in SGML but not in XML include [as of November 5, 1996]: "Tag omission; The CONCUR, LINK, DATATAG, and SHORTREF features; The "&" connector in content models; Inclusions and exclusions in content models; CURRENT, CONREF, NAME, NAMES, NUMBER, NUMBERS, NUTOKEN, and NUTOKENS declarations for attributes; The NET construct; Abstract syntax; Capacities and quantities; Comments appearing within other markup declarations; Public Identifiers; Omission of quotes on attribute values." For a more recent/complete comparison of features, see the relevant section in the language specification, or "What else has changed between SGML and XML? As of December 1997, the current and former members of the XML WG are: "Jon Bosak, Sun (Chair); James Clark (Technical Lead); Tim Bray, Textuality and Netscape (XML Co-editor); Jean Paoli, Microsoft (XML Co-editor); C. It may be necessary to regard some of these ideas 'in draft' like some of the specifications documents themselves. [June 30, 1999] A 'TEI Lite DTD in XML' was made available from the TEI Web site.
This specification describes the required behavior of an XML processor in terms of how it must read XML data and the information it must provide to the application." [adapted from the Proposal] Valid XML documents are designed to be valid SGML documents, but XML documents have additional restrictions. Several other W3C specifications are also critical to the understanding and implementation of XML as it is currently used. Editors: Tim Bray (Textuality and Netscape), Jean Paoli (Microsoft), and C. Sperberg-Mc Queen (University of Illinois at Chicago). Obviously, many of these application areas provide exemplary models, having unquestioned integrity and high quality.
The W3C XML WG has published a technical NOTE providing a "detailed comparison of the additional restrictions that XML places on documents beyond those of SGML": see for the details.

Historically: The W3C SGML Editorial Review Board, as of November 5, 1996, had the following members: Jon Bosak, Sun ([email protected]), chair; Tim Bray, Textuality ([email protected]), editor; James Clark ([email protected]), technical lead; Dan Connolly ([email protected]), W3C contact; Steve De Rose, EBT ([email protected]), editor; Dave Hollander, HP ([email protected]); Eliot Kimber, Passage Systems ([email protected]); Tom Magliery, NCSA ([email protected]); Eve Maler, Arbor Text ([email protected]); Jean Paoli, Microsoft ([email protected]); Peter Sharpe, Soft Quad ([email protected]); C. These specifications are being developed by various working groups, sometimes as part of activity outside the sphere of the XML Activity. Some already play a vital role in profitable commercial enterprise.
These working groups were designed to have close liaison relationships with the W3C's Extensible Style[sheet] Language (XSL) Working Group and Document Object Model (DOM) Working Group.
By construction, XML documents are conforming SGML documents." "XML is primarily intended to meet the requirements of large-scale Web content providers for industry-specific markup, vendor-neutral data exchange, media-independent publishing, one-on-one marketing, workflow management in collaborative authoring environments, and the processing of Web documents by intelligent clients.XML was initially "developed by a W3C Generic SGML Editorial Review Board formed under the auspices of the W3 Consortium in 1996 and chaired by Jon Bosak of Sun Microsystems, with the very active participation of a Generic SGML Working Group also organized by the W3C." An XML WG (Working Group) under W3C served initially as an editorial board, which received input from an XML Special Interest Group.As of late 1998, the XML design effort was re-chartered under the direction of an XML Coordination Group and XML Plenary Interest Group to be carried out in five new XML working groups: XML Schema Working Group, XML Fragment Working Group, XML Linking Working Group (XLink and XPointer), XML Information Set Working Group, and XML Syntax Working Group.The good news is this: Net users are seeing clearly that a fixed tag set (like HTML) is not the solution. See the references for TEI - the XML version in a separate document, and the section 'Academic Applications' for background on the SGML version of the TEI DTD."My Netscape Network (MNN) is a free Netcenter service that lets you create your own My Netscape channel.
It is also expected to find use in certain metadata applications.
