Actually I believe that TMG does need a better more robust HTML output.
With the final registration of xhtml as a mime type, We can actually start
seeing XHTML(which is the current spec for HTML btw)
Further more we can see such improvements as data embedded within text that
is searchable, and has meaning.
Xlink is a budding spec also. and lends itself directly to the complexity of
necessary for Genealogy. Unfortantly no Web browser currently supports it in
extended fashion. and I doubt even IE 7 will either. but I imagine the
of link bases will eventually make it into the mainstream.
But the concept of unstructured (well structured by paragraph rules)
Data, will start making the rounds:) So soon I imagine we will be asking
for outputs that are xhtml based with xslt style sheets. as a base and and
then we can
modify those from there.:)
