Thank you!

I need to know some philosophical things for a start:

1. How could I make my work easier with XML as compared to some
other data format? ("Why XML?") -- 1 page of text ;-)

2. Are there any GPLed, fast and relaible XML parsers (which  I
could embed) and how they help me with task No. 1.  (I  do  not
want to add a forest of rpms to be able to run QZB with help of
some exotic Haskel interpreter).

3. What are all those DTDs and if I develop yet another ML, are
there any tools which will convert it  into  specific  actions.
For example, quiz data stored in (to be built)  QZB  data  file
needs  to  be  interpreted,  turned  into  actions  of   asking
questions, storing answers, mailing forms, etc.

4. Are there any tools which could be  used  to  create  QZB-ML
files by 'point and click' users?

5. How can I add non-text files (GIF, WAV, MOV...) into the set
of QZB-ML documents?

6. What does XML-aware browser do? ow could it be used for good?

Of course,


for more generality.

After that go some specific questions, which will depend
on the tools which will be in use.
