Methodologies and Tools for Vocabularies
Vocabularies can be used to make XML resources fully self-describing, fully interchangeable and fully interoperable, down to the last syntactic and semantic feature.
This can be accomplished using existing W3C and ISO recommendations and standards, all from the XML and SGML families of recommendations and standards.
- Alternatively, the same principles could be applied using different modeling syntaxes, purpose-built for the Web.
- ...but if it can be done without reinventing everything, why bother?
