A preview of the site is now online, but the official launch date for the site is set for May 1, 1998.
XML technology promises to be an essential tool for electronic
commerce and information management. Recently the XML Specification was
approved by the World Wide Web Consortium, and interest in XML development has picked up considerably.
The new site was created with the goal of promoting the development and
commercial acceptance of XML. XML.com features a combination of information
and services for the XML community, and targets those who are already working with XML and those who want to start learning about what XML has to offer.
The three partners bring to the site their own expertise along with a shared
commitment to the development and commercial acceptance of XML. O’Reilly
focuses on XML as a framework and tool for Web developers, while content from
Seybold comes from the company’s publishing tool background. Songline Studios
is currently developing and maintaining the site.
