Hi Premshree, Sunanda,
I'm interested in knowing what you would be using a DOM-based XML
parser with Rebol for.
I really can't see why xml would be necessary, when Rebol parsing
and block/series scripting is an easier data transfer scheme (if Rebol
was used as a networked messaging language at large.)
But... XML/HTML is the simplest way to quickly describe and receive/share
data with the rest of the NET within the browser world. If Rebol thinks it can
replace e-mail and HTML, then it's got to get rid of the E-Mailer and the browser.
I really don't see that ever happening.
I would like to know how some would use a DOM parser with Rebol and XML.
I personally hope to use it to get rid of any xml having to be piped over the web
to be interpreted by the browser. I Can,t share this right now, but Rebol script
would be large and in charge by everyone that does this.
Why i believe we need a quick-parser, a browser plug-in and a DOM-based
XML parser ?
So we can completely control any browser, its contents, HTML,
CSS, password protection, encryption, serializing, ziping, objects, and its'
transfer protocal so people won't have to buy and learn how to use a boat
load of software.
So Rebol would be seen as a reasonable choice to message
web-site data across the net.
