You can download the code and run the demos--that is "shipping" in my book. Anyway, my point is that giving up on SMIL right now seems a little shortsighted... like dismissing CSS in 1996 because there weren't any browsers that supported it. Of course, I seem to remember you don't like CSS either... so maybe that's a bad example. :^) Lucas Gonze wrote: > "for researchers and developers" -- it's a sandbox. > > There are a number of such projects but still no shipping software, and > SMIL is not new. > > On Sat, 25 Sep 2004, Ryan Shaw wrote: > >>Lucas Gonze wrote: >> >> >>>There are two background problems.
