tvr: consider equilateral triangle xul dom tree of widgets CSS style JS handlers/behavior -- XBL is the centroid of this triangle that holds it together

TimBL -- there is some unfortunate history in the way semantics is used
18:00:07 [ht]
All the HTML spec says is "The _p_ element represents a paragraph"
18:01:41 [timbl]
The word 'semantic' was used by the SGML community to mean 'a top level heading' rather than '24 point centered bold'.
18:03:30 [timbl]
18:03:35 [Rhys]
I believe its been used to bind svg-based widgets to XForms
18:03:38 [ht]
In general, "An SGML application" was defined as the combination of a syntax (expressed via a DTD) and a semantics (defined in prose)
18:04:53 [raman]
tvr: functionaly xbl could be thought of as bringing to xml the expressiveness offered by latex macros
18:05:34 [timbl]
Maybe we should just give each browser an implementation of XISP. -- XMLized LISP. :)
18:05:56 [ht]
... The semantics would be expressed in terms appropriate to the domain, so, for documents, "top-level heading" might be appropriate, and for personnel records, "name", "department", "salary" etc.
18:06:24 [timbl]
The interesting this yes, is if the javascript is progressively thrown awayas the macros become standard and also have higher-level semantics
18:09:59 [DanC]
(hmm... I wonder if the XBL charter notes the relationship with XSLT, or if the XSLT WG is noted as a dependency0
