Subject XML support
Date Fri, 19 Dec 1997 16:35:19 GMT
One thing that XML support might mean is for a web server to interface to the 
"useful content"
via the W3C's "Document Object Model" or DOM for short.

So instead of mapping URL's into filenames or cgi script names you map into the 
document
object model and components of the model. You maybe implement the XPOINTER 
standard
from the most recent SGML work.

Obviously you do this in some apache module. 

I'll give pointers in a future email message.

But basically this kind of stuff plays right into Apache's strengths. 
Especially when things like 
the perl module give
you access to lots of existing and material like a full sgml parser (not hacked 
up ones.
There is an interface to James Clark's SP system in perl. Clark is the guy who 
wrote
the ISO standard DSSSL.)
