Subject: FLASH: Curious on views of XHTML
From: Kevin Jackson
Date: Fri, 30 Jun 2000 19:13:42 +0100

This quote was in a recent ComputerWorld article on XHTML by Matthew

"XHTML will ultimately replace proprietary Web file formats such as Portable
Document Format files and FLASH and other multimedia formats. For example,
the Synchronized Multimedia Integration Language (SMIL Version 1.0,
pronounced SMILE) allows designers to describe the temporal behavior and
layout of a web page as well as associate hyperlinks with objects. Along
with the Scalable Vector Graphics XML standard, designers could create
animation or even augment television feeds using XML."

My view is that he is a bit naive and overly simplifying but am I missing
something about the standard?
