Testimonials for XML Information Set Recommendation

These testimonials are in support of the W3C XML Information Set Recommendation.

The use of XML by our customers has grown rapidly over the last three years and so it is important that any consumer of an XML document has an unambiguous understanding of the information in that document. XML Infoset is the key standard that provides the identification and description of information inside an XML document in a coherent manner. IBM is pleased to have contributed to its development within the W3C.

-- Bob Sutor, Director of e-business Standards Strategy, IBM

Markup Technology Ltd. welcomes the publication of the XML Infoset Recommendation. We see it as providing a solid basis for describing the behaviour and interaction of XML processing applications. We expect infosets to play an important role in any products which support the integration of multiple XML processing steps.

-- Henry Thompson, Managing Director, Markup Technology Ltd.

Microsoft welcomes the XML Information Set as a W3C Recommendation. The potential the XML Information Set has for driving consistency between specifications is already evident in emerging work such as the XQuery 1.0 and XPath 2.0 Data Model, SOAP 1.2, and XInclude 1.0. The XML Information Set draws an important baseline which consists of XML 1.0, Namespaces in XML, and XML Base.
