    I know I just posted my latest blog entry, but further to my deep seated love of the X-Men I just wanted to pass along this link . While I'm sure Li Ruqing is a very nice man, I regret to inform him he's no STORM (a.k.a. Ororo Monroe).

    Uncanny Dynamic Portals

    • 7 Comments
    Not many people know this, but I am a published comic book author. In 1997, I co-wrote a series for Caliber comics titled “Technopolis” with my good friend Adrie Van Viersen who is – to say the least – an exceptional artist. Adrie has since gone on to...

    Dereferencing a dynamic crosslink in an xml-based markup language

    • 1 Comments
    So, let's say you have created your own xml-based markup language. You have designed the schema, you've got some xsd's to describe it, some xslt to transform it to html so your readers can view it in a browser. Just for fun, let's say your directory structure...

    Anyone else using xml as a markup language?

    • 9 Comments
    I'd like to do an informal survey - how many of you out there are using xml as markup? There is a great deal of discussion of using xml to represent data but very little discussion of using xml as markup. I guess that's because HTML and XHTML exist already...

    Back to the Schema Part I

    Today I'd like to talk a bit more about the authoring xml schema that is used to create documentation for the Longhorn SDK. In reality there are several xml schemas that are used to author content for the Longhorn SDK but there is only one 'native' xml...

    An XML "build" system.

    • 3 Comments
    I've received some mail requesting more information on what exactly comprises an 'xml build system'. Some have asked why we just don't deliver xml and have xslt transform the document on the server before it's sent down to the browser. Thus, I'm going...

    Adventures in schema design

    • 1 Comments
    One of the practical considerations in designing a xml-based documentation system is creating an appropriate schema. I'm going to digress here a little, so please bear with me. In theory at least, the users of the system (programmer/writers, editors...

    The Longhorn SDK

    • 4 Comments
    The easiest way to have a look at the Longhorn SDK is to check it out here on MSDN. The entire site you see there is built using the tools developed internally by the Longhorn SDK team. The 'big picture' process is pretty simple - a tool called “Olympia”...

    My first post

    • 4 Comments
    Here's my first blog post of any sort - EVER. I have to admit that I'm not a blog aficionado, so if I should ever stray from blog protocol you'll know it's because I'm ignorant. So, my name is Peter Taylor and I work here at Microsoft on the Longhorn...
