Stack Overflow Launches Authoring Environment for XHTML

Stack Overflow AG announced the commercial availability of the Mozquito Factory, an XHTML authoring environment. XHTML bridges HTML with the power of XML, bringing richer Web pages and more flexible Web applications for a wide range of platforms and browsers: from desktop PCs to televisions to kiosks to automobiles and mobile devices. Written entirely in Java, the Mozquito Factory is a client-side, stand-alone authoring environment. The Mozquito Factory significantly reduces authoring costs for complex, highly dynamic Web interfaces — saving hundreds of hours of programming time. Built upon a modular framework, the Mozquito Factory combines three independent applications into a toolkit: Mozquito Engine: to enable current browsers, such as Netscape Navigator or Microsoft Internet Explorer versions 4.0 and higher, to process the extensibility and display next-generation data formats and standards, including XML and XHTML; XHTML Validator: to automatically validate any XHTML or XML document, optimize markup, and invoke the Mozquito Engine upon successful validation to view the Web page; and Factory Editor: to author and edit highly dynamic XHTML, XML and forms-intensive Web sites without scripting or programming. With the Mozquito Factory, users no longer need to worry about incomplete implementations caused by the browser wars or tiresome cross-browser scripting in JavaScript/JScript/VBScript or Java Applet programming. Developers can now design and create online shops, eCommerce applications, quizzes, polls, questionnaires, games, calendars, order forms, surveys, administration interfaces and complex, dynamic Web pages in minutes.

Microsoft Submits SOAP to IETF

Microsoft submitted to the IETF (Internet Engineering Task Force) a draft specification for version 1.0 of SOAP (Simple Object Access Protocol), a method for accessing objects over the Web that is neutral between object models such as COM and CORBA. SOAP uses XML to let developers write applications that call objects built with Microsoft’s Distributed Component Object Model, as well as non-Microsoft components.
