<br />
Thanks for the info Vadim.
<br />

<br />
By "open standard", I'm thinking of something like XML itself, which is defined by the W3C
and supported by multiple players in the industry.
<br />

<br />
It's obvious that XSP is not a proprietary standard, but I'm wondering who defined it?  who
endorses it?
<br />
