Re: [sgf-std] Re: SGF & XML
> Is anyone doing anything on this front?Many people have asked about an XML version. Over 2 years ago a group of
people set out to define such a file format (AFAIK up until now they only
have produced a requirements document).
I have dismissed XML until recently. Now, as I know core XML technologies by
heart (because of my job), I think it is a good idea. Also, now I have the
necessary knowledge of XML that I feel up to the task.
Actually, one week ago (independent of Vlad's email) I set out to start
define an XML format plus an API on top of the DOM. I don't want to present
my ideas prematurely, because I'd don't want to waste everyone's time with
Give me three more weeks and I will show you what I have got.
Btw, Vlad: I thought about naming it XGF just as you wrote your email ;o)
p.s. please disregard SGFML (currently on the web site), I didn't have a clue
about XML back then.
