Exterminating, I mean, parsing wild web XML

posted: Jan 14, 2004 7:52:06 PM

Reading Mark Pilgrim talking about parsing wild web "XML" is like reading a bug exterminator talking roach biology. Exciting in many of its details, at the very least. A different perspective than what you might get from an academic entomologists.

Some good comments all around, though maybe a little too much bug spray getting inhaled on all sides. So, some links are in order: read and judge not lest ye wake up one morning finding yourself turned into a cockroach:

From Mark Pilgrim: There are no exceptions to Postel's Law and Thought Experiment.

From Tim Bray: On Postel, Again.

From Danny Ayers: Bugger Bob and Thought experiment?.

From Norman Walsh: On Atom and Postel's Law and Rebuked.

From Don Park: Biased Liberal and Dealing with the Good, the Bad, and the Ugly Feeds.

Thanks for the refs, and thanks too for the Don Park links - I hadn't seen these. My favourite line so far (from Norm) : "Mark caught me serving broken XHTML. I wish my browser had done me that favor.".

title: Atom-induced Metamorphosis

Jay Fienberg has a list of posts relating to this (not-)liberal-parsing Atom stuff. But that's not why I'm blogging it...
