RE: [ba-ohs-talk] Geneaology - hierarchical format
Note also that the LDS have been moving towards an XML-based standard 
and that there is a discussion list for genealogical XML at Yahoo . A lot
of work as been done on getting this kind of data into topic maps , and a
little towards RDF : a DAML+OIL schema is at  and there has been
discussion of using genealogy data within the FOAF vocabulary . I'm
really hoping the latter use comes about, because Jim Ley's graphic foafnaut
work  is really sweet ;-) (01)
(I looked into this a bit while trying to come up with a nice node and arc
example to do in SVG, but in the end gave up because it was getting to
complicated for the purpose - family trees simply aren't trees!) (02)
