XML, RSS and Related Technologies

Just wondering why no XML forum

I'm just wondering out loud, why this isn't a 'XML, RSS and Related Technologies' forum. RSS is, of course, just one thing you can do with XML.

My thirst for learning all things XML has me wishing for more XML/XSLT talk on WebmasterWorld and wondering there wouldn't be more if a forum was declared.

This, unless there is a substaintial other site that deals with XML directly. The only one I've seen is the experts talk at Mulberry Tech, but that lacks the readability of WebmasterWorld and it's very much cutting edge.

Or is it that there aren't enough directly website related uses for XML?

XML can be divided into several bits.

This forum covers the syndication bit, (which gives it the title, "RSS and Related Technologies [webmasterworld.com]"), where as XSLT/XHTML can be discussed in the "HTML and Browsers [webmasterworld.com]" forum. Other XML-related stuff can be covered in the 'Foo [webmasterworld.com]' Forum.

I would say we have the whole XML area covered at WebmasterWorld :), so whats the use of opening its own forum?

maybe XML, but not XSLT.

XSL<>HTML and XSL<>foo

It's the XSL I'm interested in seeing more of. A quick search for XSL currently suggests only 67 posts. This one among them.. [webmasterworld.com]

Maybe someday
