MicroXML Community Group

MicroXML is a subset of XML intended for use in contexts where full XML is, or is perceived to be, too large and complex. MicroXML provides a set of rules for defining markup languages intended for use in encoding data objects, and specifies behavior for certain software modules that access them.

Note: Community Groups are proposed and run by the community. Although W3C hosts these conversations, the groups do not necessarily represent the views of the W3C Membership or staff.

Hello, everyone

Apparently the first order of business is to choose chairs, and this is done by going to the member page and checking boxes next to the people who are to become chairs.

I’ll just provide a pointer to the MicroXML Editor’s Draft, which I will be updating as we make decisions.  It’s also a good example of a well-formed MicroXML document.
