In response:I've tried a little bit of PHP, and just seen some samples of ASP,
JSP, and ColdFusion. But in case you didn't notice CML only consists of two
tags. Compare that to PHP, which is very similar to C+ programming language.
I'm not sure if you were complementing or what, but it's true CML would be
compatible with pretty much anything out there, including
different sources to be rendered on the page in a layered format. As for
line 1: <source form:[path]:coord>+line 2: <source form:[path]:coord>+
line 3: <source form:[path]:coord>
Tabs would be image objects with linkage to lines within a single cascade
record. I know you think it sounds like batch programming, but it's really not
any different from standard html, in that respect, other than the simplicity,
user agent needs to understand CML natively - that's just not going to happen.
In response:Very funny, but CML is so simple, it would only take you around
5-10 minutes to learn it completely.
You wrote:There are many server-side options and it really sounds like that's
where CML would fit. Your developers would write in CML, and the 'engine'
would render that into the appropriate content for delivery to UAs.
In response:I don't know why everyone keeps referring to server-side
infrastructure in response to CML. When you access html files located on an
Microsoft IIS server, you access folders located either on the server, or on a
remote server/database. CML would access the .frm/.mnu files, for example from
the same server's folders, or from a remote server/database. The difference is
in the backend, being on the unix side, I believe, which runs the scripts for
html. So I was wondering if the browsers translate the html code, or if the
internet servers require a script update with the appropriate implementations
to run on the .frm/.mnu file extensions in order to apply the rules with
respect to line text in those files.
So I don't think we're synched up with it too well. I guess I would like to
know whether the browser's code applies the html, or if the internet servers
handle the translation for rendering of site content onto the web page. If the
server side handles the processing of html code, it might require a new
protocol, or internet information server script. If the browsers handle the
processing of html code, then the browsers would need the update to be able to
run CML. I just thought it would require an entirely new specification in
order to implement it for the general public.
Personally I don't see value in this proposal.
In response:I'm confident that CML would replace html entirely, though, by
popular franchise, haha. I'm beginning to get the idea that I would have to
develop my own open source website, and driver/script update for browsers, like
with Flash updates.
Didn't mean to take up too much of your time.

Yeah! For example, I'm working on a offline CMS that actually uses
include/declaration files for all the components of a static site. The
CMS will grab all that apply templates and "render" the finished html,
PHP is actually used to power this CMS.

I have to agree, I almost feel like I'm being trolled at this point.
Unless a post or a "diagram" shows up that makes me go "Ah! Now I see!"
I'm not going to bother responding to any further posts on this subject.
