My views regarding XML are at the opposite end of the spectrum from those views expressed by Dvorak and the Luddites. I think that XML will ensure that content is easier to index, easier to find and that the search engines will find it much easier to determine relevancy.
A webmaster that takes the time to code a site in SportsML will likely have a site that is relevant to sports. Incorporating XLinks in that sports site will enable that same webmaster to provide access to content quickly and efficiently.
So, why aren't we seeing more info and hype regarding XLinks? How many of you are thinking about coding your next site in XML? Or is everyone waiting until support is well established?
There are presently so many emerging technologies that I prefer to wait until something is firmly established (and a necessity) before investing the time to learn to use it. Acquiring the software tools to use with a new technology can be costly too.
