A Standardized Generalized Mark-up Language for Linking and Sharing Scientific Data and Models through the Network
Standardized generalized mark-up language (SGML) allows interchange of documents including structure and formatting. The specific version used for hyper-text documents (HTML) now forms the basis for the navigation and use of the World Wide Web (WWW), and the universal resource locator (URL) is widely used. However, the use of SGML combined with URL is generally still linked to documents and navigation of the WWW. Scientific applications, particularly databases and models produced in research and development, are often missing from the web. This may partly be due to the unavailability of a tool for integrating them within the network. The development of two new SGML languages and associated transfer protocols may allow integration of data-sets and models.
