Article about Relaxed at WWW2006
Beside the opportunity to present Relaxed and to emphesize weaknesses of other validation approaches (e.g. W3C validator) it was also a great opportunity to see where is Web heading in the following years. It seems quite obvious that the old Web paradigm needs to be replaced or at least renovated with something new which is referenced to as the Web 2.0. A big movement which had an increadible amount of space at the conference is semantic web and its application.
What is very interesting for the Relaxed project is that (if we forget about the ugly microformat approach) all of those new directions inevitably lead to the use of combined grammars in the Web environment and they also intesify the need of validation of such documents.
