XPS goes to the standards body ECMA
I'm back from my holiday, catching up on mails and events to get back up to speed.
Some important XPS related news came in a few days back: ECMA
announced that they are going to form a technical committee, TC46
, with the aim of standardizing of XPS.
This is important as it illustrates that Microsoft puts their money where their mouth is: XPS is an open standard.
Also of note is the chairman of this committee, Mr. Martin Bailey of Global Graphics Software Ltd.
Global Graphics is a pioneer in XPS technology, and Mr. Bailey as CTO of Global Graphics is an expert on the technology. He has written a few documents in the XPS FAQ
over at the Global Graphics site, these are a must read for everyone interested in XPS.
