Margaret Rouse Margaret Rouse Profile: Margaret Rouse

tim-bray.jpg W3C XML Schemas (XSD) suck. They are hard to read, hard to write, hard to understand, have interoperability problems, and are unable to describe lots of things you want to do all the time in XML.

Tim was co-editor of the XML 1.0 specification and created the first parser software for XML documents. Currently, he is the Director of Web Technologies for Sun Microsystems.
