Lexica LLC announced that it has published a preview set of XML schemas on Microsoft’s BizTalk.org and Lexica’s iLingo.org Web sites. This is a comprehensive set of XML schemas that is specifically designed to empower the supply chain participants in the end-to-end automation of insurance selling and transaction processing. The new set of schemas, collectively called iLingo, provides the essential structural framework for deploying portable, robust transactional applications that enable business-to-business and business-to-consumer e-commerce. Once Version 1.0 is released in early 2000, iLingo will be freely available to any insurance or related financial services provider. Updates will be posted at www.ilingo.org and www.biztalk.org. www.lexica.net
