Slashcode Log In
XML for formatting information of Slash* layout
posted by Krow on 07:25 AM March 3rd, 2002
Are there plans to upgrade Slashcode to use XML to seperate the layout definition of pages generated by Slashcode and the actual information? I don't know enough about XML to know if it can be used to create such a schema that would define an HTML page into which data can be placed into, but such a schema would be an enormous time-saver for those of us using dial-up modems, as well as saving bandwidth and potentially reducing load on the servers. It would also make it much easier to make other interfaces to slashdot, like a Usenet type browser instead of a web-based interface.
