As you can see from the conference agenda, there were presentations on a wide variety of XML topics over the two days. As noted in the closing keynote (more on that below), there was a general theme of “XML in the browser” that cut through many sessions, as well as sessions on other topics such as EPUB, JSON, DITA, and others. The room was packed, with nearly every seat taken and extra chairs lining the aisle, for the opening session by Norm Walsh (above) that covered the history of HTML and XML and some of the use cases that have been considered by the W3C TAG HTML/XML Task Force. And the room stayed packed, all weekend long, with none of the drop-off in attendance many conferences experience.
