Subject Re: Excel generator
Date Thu, 01 Aug 2002 10:39:08 GMT
About the Source vs Generator issue: I found a post by Sylvain [1]. It 
does not separate the Source and Generator concepts completely but the 
bottom line seems to be
- If you have a format with some "natural" xml respresentation, it's a 
source (Like Excel->MS's Excel-XML?)
- If you have a binary format which needs to be parsed to XML, it's a 
generator (Like XLS -> Gnumeric?)
