XML Publication : Web Document Publication Through XML
In their words: "XML Publication is a set of tools to generate Web pages from desktop documents or other structured documents. It is a command-line tool ready for production. If you have a large volume of word processor files with a regular structure or table data to put on the Web, this is for you."

Web-Based Teaching: The Beginning of the End for Universities Some harsh words for the university culture based on a professor's experience in putting a course on the web. To wit, from the abstract: "difficulties in getting this particular inter-disciplinary subject widely accepted have laid bare some of the
disciplinary-based myopia and information-based elitism that characterizes." The rest of the essay is more restrained, but the point is clear by the conclusion: "there are serious flaws in universities? current efforts to maintain their control of education. Universities are elite and exclusionary, not to mention possessive of and addicted to information. By contrast, the web is
democratic, inclusive and much more sharing of its resources." The essay is in PDF format.
