Michael posted his impressions of the DC XML Forum.
We saw a whole bunch of XML authoring environments, among other things. The part that struck me the most was that the authoring environments, basically, were the same. Basically you had your:
* Styled tagless view (word processor)
* little tags that you hover over to see the attributes view
* plain text view
Technoflak had a similar impression and is working on her own account of the event.
