By the way, there's an upcoming conference on 
April 30 to May 2 on developing open XML standards 
for bible and theological documents. I'll be speaking
there about Theological Markup Language.

This conference is sponsored by the American Bible
Society, and they're trying to get an industry-wide
support for an open standard, perhaps ending in a 
W3C standard or something like that.

The conference is by invitation only, but the organizers
asked me for some recommendations. It would seem good
to have representation from the open-source community.
Is there anyone who would really like to go?  It's
in the Washington, DC area and unfortunately you'd 
have to pay your own transportation, hotel room, and 

Otherwise, I can report on what was said and done there.
