# HTML is intended to be written by humans (by hand). # HTML is intended to be displayed to humans. # Machines that want to interpret HTML need to act like humans, and not the other way around. - XML: How to get the benefits without the heartache, part 1

by rax262
First up, a scope warning for this article. This is the first part of a two-part piece about XML. Here I focus on uses of XML in areas such as application configuration files, the exchange of structured, machine-oriented data, that sort of thing. In the second part, I discuss XML in document-centric applications such as content/document management and Web publication systems.

Z-Push - open source push technology

by camel
Mobile data synchronization is becoming increasingly important for many people, and various standards have arisen to perform this two-way copying 'over-the-air'. The most important platforms that can do wireless synchronisation are ActiveSync that is used to communicate with Exchange Server and Research-in-Motion's BlackBerry Enterprise Server (BES). Both solutions require proprietary server-side software from the vendor, therefore limiting the use of PIMs (personal information managers) to either wired synchronization or irritating 3rd-party synchronizers requiring the installation of client software on the PDA.

OpenXML/ODF Translator Add-ins for Office

by camel & 1 other (via)
The goal for this project is to provide translators to allow for interoperability between applications based on ODF (OpenDocument) 1.0 standards and Microsoft OpenXML based Office applications. As a part of this interoperability initiative, add-ins are being developed that can be installed on top of Microsoft Office Word (document processing), Excel (spreadsheet) and PowerPoint (presentation) applications (Office 2007 / 2003 / XP version) to allow for opening and saving OpenDocument format / ODF files (.odt, .ods and .odp) that adheres to ODF 1.0 specifications. We also provide command line translator utilities that allow doing batch conversions. The converter is based on XSL transformations between two XML formats, along with some pre- and post-processing to manage the packaging (zip / unzip), schema incompatibility processings and the integration into Microsoft Office applications like Word, Excel and PowerPoint. We chose to use an Open Source development model that allows developers from all around the world to participate & contribute to the project. Along with the Add-ins for Microsoft Word (v1.0 released), Excel (under development) and PowerPoint (under development), we also provide a command line translator that allows doing batch conversions. These translators can also be run on the server side for certain scenarios.

[Tutos] Administration de serveurs dédiés - Blog Alsacréations : XHTML, CSS et Standards web

by camel & 4 others
Un ensemble de nouveaux tutoriels a été mis en ligne cette semaine pour inaugurer une nouvelle thématique : L'administration de serveurs dédiés. En effet, les hébergements dédiés sont devenus monnaie courante, et il est fréquent de devoir plonger les mains dans le cambouis. Ces tutoriels ont pour but de servir de feuille de route à la mise en place d'un serveur web sous Apache assorti de PHP et MySQL, ainsi que de services mail et ftp. Des conseils en matière de monitoring, de sauvegarde et de sécurité complètent le tour d'horizon. Deux d'entre eux abordent également de façon rapide l'installation du webmail Roundcube et du panel de gestion DTC pour contrôler plus efficacement les services évoqués précédemment dans le cas d'un hébergement multi-domaines.
