Pharyngeal mucosal pressures, airway sealing pressures, and fiberoptic position with the intubating versus the standard laryngeal mask airway. (1/190)

BACKGROUND: The tube of the intubating laryngeal mask (ILM) is more rigid than the standard laryngeal mask airway (LMA), and the authors have tested the hypothesis that pharyngeal mucosal pressures, airway sealing pressures, and fiberoptic position are different when the two devices are compared. METHODS: Twenty anesthetized, paralyzed adults were randomly allocated to receive either the LMA or ILM for airway management. Microchip sensors were attached to the size 5 LMA or ILM at locations corresponding to the pyriform fossa, hypopharynx, base of tongue, posterior pharynx, and distal and proximal oropharynx. Mucosal pressures, airway sealing pressures, and fiberoptic positioning were recorded during inflation of the cuff from 0 to 40 ml in 10-ml increments. RESULTS: Airway sealing pressures were higher for the ILM (30 vs. 23 cm H2O), but epiglottic downfolding was more common (56% vs. 26%). Pharyngeal mucosal pressures were much higher for the ILM at five of six locations. Mean mucosal pressures in the distal oropharynx for the ILM were always greater than 157 cm H2O, regardless of cuff volume. There was no correlation between mucosal pressures and airway sealing pressures at any location for the LMA, but there was a correlation at three of six locations for the ILM. CONCLUSIONS: The ILM provides a more effective seal than the LMA, but pharyngeal mucosal pressures are higher and always exceed capillary perfusion pressure. The ILM is unsuitable for use as a routine airway and should be removed after its use as an airway intubator.  (+info)

Palliation of dysphagia from inoperable oesophageal carcinoma using Atkinson tubes or self-expanding metal stents. (2/190)

Until recently, intubation for the palliation of malignant dysphagia has relied upon the insertion of a variety of plastic tubes. Self-expanding metal stents are reported to have a lower complication rate. We have compared the results of Atkinson tube insertion with self-expanding metal stents in patients with inoperable oesophageal carcinoma. From 1990 to 1994 Atkinson tubes were inserted for the palliation of dysphagia from oesophageal cancer, from 1994 onwards self-expanding metal stents were used. Complications, mortality and hospital stay were compared in both groups of patients. In all, 87 patients with inoperable oesophageal carcinoma were treated, 46 with an Atkinson tube and 41 with metal stents. Complications occurred at similar rates in both groups (56% Atkinson tubes, 44% metal stents). There was a significantly higher perforation rate associated with Atkinson tube insertion (8 patients, 17%) compared with metal stents (1 patient, 2.4%, P = 0.02, chi 2). The length of stay was also significantly higher in the Atkinson tube group (median 10 days) compared with the metal stent group (3 days, P < 0.01, Mann-Whitney U test). Mortality rates were similar in both groups. The use of metal stents for the palliation of dysphagia in inoperable oesophageal carcinoma results in a lower perforation rate and a reduced length of stay and they represent a significant advantage over Atkinson tubes.  (+info)

Sensorineural hearing loss and prematurity. (4/190)

OBJECTIVE: To elucidate clinical antecedents of sensorineural hearing loss (SNHL) in very preterm infants. DESIGN: Case-control study. SUBJECTS: Fifteen children < 33 weeks' gestation with significant SNHL born between 1 January 1990 and 31 December 1994, detected within 9 months of birth, and 30 matched control children. METHODOLOGY: Perinatal variables in the two groups were compared using non-parametric tests and conditional logistic regression (EGRET). RESULTS: Median birth weight for the index group was 960 g (range 600-2914 g) compared with 1026 g (range 410-2814 g) for controls. Children with SNHL had longer periods of intubation, ventilation, oxygen treatment, and acidosis, and more frequent treatment with dopamine or frusemide. Neither peak nor trough aminoglycoside levels, nor duration of jaundice or level of bilirubin varied between groups. However, SNHL was more likely if peak bilirubin levels coexisted with netilmicin use (odds ratio (95% confidence interval) 14.2 (1.8 to 113.6)) or if acidosis occurred when bilirubin levels were over 200 micromol/l (OR 8.0 (0.9 to 71.6). Frusemide use in the face of high serum creatinine levels (OR 8.9 (1.1 to 74.5)) or netilmicin treatment (OR 5.0 (0.99 to 24.8)) was also associated with SNHL. At 12 months of age, seven of 15 children with SNHL had evidence of cerebral palsy compared with two of 30 controls (OR 12.3 (2.1 to 71)). CONCLUSIONS: Preterm children with SNHL required more intensive care in the perinatal period and developed more neurological complications than controls. Among very preterm babies, the coexistence of risk factors for hearing loss may be more important than the individual factors themselves.  (+info)

Adhesion formation in intubated rabbits increases with high insufflation pressure during endoscopic surgery. (5/190)

The aim of the study was to test the hypothesis that the increase in adhesion formation by CO(2) pneumoperitoneum is caused by mesothelial hypoxaemia. Therefore the effect of the intra-abdominal pressure together with the flow rate upon adhesion formation was evaluated in rabbits following laser and bipolar lesions during endoscopic surgery using humidified CO(2) at 35 +/- 1 degrees C. The intra-abdominal pressure and flow rate were 5 mmHg and 1 l/min in group 1 (n = 5), 5 mmHg and 10 l/min in group 2 (n = 4), 20 mmHg and 1 l/min in group 3 (n = 5) and 20 mmHg and 10 l/min in group 4 (n = 4) respectively. A rapid and reliable intubation method for rabbits was developed to permit high insufflation pressure. By two-way analysis of variance, total adhesion scores following a laser lesion increased with flow rate (P = 0.0003) and insufflation pressure (P = 0.002). Total adhesion scores of bipolar lesions increased with pressure (P = 0.02) but not with flow rate (P = 0.1). The total adhesion scores of laser and bipolar lesions together increased with flow rate (P = 0.005) and with insufflation pressure (P = 0.004). There was no statistical interaction between flow rate and insufflation pressure. In conclusion, the insufflation pressure in endoscopic surgery with CO(2) pneumoperitoneum is a co-factor in adhesion formation, together with desiccation.  (+info)

Combination therapy for chronic Pseudomonas aeruginosa respiratory infection associated with biofilm formation. (6/190)

There had been no reports of investigations into biofilms in chronic respiratory infection in vivo. Recently, we established a new murine model of chronic respiratory infection with Pseudomonas aeruginosa. In the present study, we examined the bacteriological effect of combined clarithromycin and levofloxacin against chronic respiratory infection with P. aeruginosa. Scanning electron micrograph of the surface of the catheter intubated in mouse bronchus for 7 days demonstrated in vivo formation of a biofilm containing blood cells, complex fibrous structures and bacteria. Treatment with either clarithromycin alone or levofloxacin alone had no statistical effect on the number of viable bacteria in lung. The combined use of both drugs resulted in a significant decrease in the number of viable bacteria. The present experiment demonstrates that the newly established murine model was useful to investigate the treatment of biofilm-associated chronic respiratory infection with P. aeruginosa, and combination therapy with clarithromycin and levofloxacin was effective in biofilm-associated chronic respiratory infection.  (+info)

Anesthesia in the Yom Kippur war. (7/190)

The role of the anesthetist in the treatment of battle casualties is discussed in the light of personal experience in a field hospital and in the rear during the Yom Kippur War of October 1973. Resuscitation and intensive care both before and after evacuation play an important part in reducing mortality, and the importance of providing adequate facilities for these functions in the battle area as well as at the base is emphasized.  (+info)

Endoscopic management of biliary leaks after T-tube removal in liver transplant recipients: nasobiliary drainage versus biliary stenting. (8/190)

This study presents the long-term sequelae of endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography (ERCP)-managed biliary leakage in patients who underwent orthotopic liver transplantation (OLT) and compares the relative efficacy, safety, and charges of nasobiliary drainage (NBD) versus biliary stenting (BS). We identified all orthotopic liver transplant recipients from January 1, 1993, to December 31, 1997, who had undergone ERCP for biliary leakage. Clinical outcome and charges were calculated on an intention-to-treat basis according to initial endoscopic therapy. Of the 1,166 adult OLTs performed during the study period, 442 patients underwent elective T-tube removal. ERCP was attempted in 69 patients (16%) who developed biliary leakage after T-tube removal. Three patients (5%) in whom initial ERCP was unsuccessful underwent surgery. NBD and BS were used as primary therapy in 45 (68%) and 21 patients (32%), respectively. Three patients initially treated with NBD required reendoscopy or surgery compared with 6 patients initially treated with BS (P <.05). Although not statistically significant, there was a trend toward greater expense in the BS group compared with the NBD group. ERCP is a safe and effective method of managing biliary leakage after T-tube removal in orthotopic liver transplant recipients. However, our results suggest NBD is the preferred method because recurrent leaks were more common in patients treated initially with BS. With prompt use of ERCP, surgery is rarely needed for this complication of OLT.  (+info)

Lost firearms happen more often that you think...and they happen in bigger departments than Atkinson...unfortunately they usually involve an officer leaving their weapon unattended in a vehicle or in their homes which is subsequently broken into and taken...however, if I remember correctly, the officer that lost his weapon in Atkinson was helping motorist push their stuck and disabled cars out off snow banks and ditches during a major snowstorm...that little fact is never reported by Team Blog and is always followed with a Mayberry joke...again...wow!...calling a small town cop Barney Fife!....pure comic genius and such original material...the point is Team Blog is onesided...they choose what facts get placed into what posts and offer nothing original of their own...if they did have a staff and reporters and instead of Team Members then their secret identities would be exposed for all to see and they would not be able to spew out their lopsided view on the events that take place in this ...

Dr. Holly Atkinson, nationally recognized speaker known for offering practical advice, motivation and inspiration, presented The 5 Keys to Maximum Health during the MFHS 40th Annual Meeting held October 26. The Annual Meeting was a community event to celebrate 40 years of service with MFHS board members, partners and supporters. It was an opportunity to take a look back on all that MFHS has accomplished over the past four decades and look ahead to new opportunities. During her presentation, Dr. Atkinson discussed the research that shows that simple solutions like moving more and thinking positively can have a lasting and positive impact on overall health and wellness, and provided evidence of the negative health impact of behaviors such as sedentary lifestyles, poor diet, negative thinking, stress, and a self-centered culture. Dr. Atkinsons experience as a national medical correspondent includes appearances on NBCs Today show, The CBS Morning News, Lifetime Medical Television, and PBS. She is an
At the close of the day Tuesday May 7th, 1946 it pleased Almighty God to call back to Himself Craig G. Atkinson, the infant son of Mr. and Mrs. Milton Atkinson. We done know just why god should call the smiling little baby-boy out of our midst so soon and so suddenly, but we do believe God s ways are always best and right, and He will keep His promise to send us light into the darkness and disappointment of this hour.

Started Early, Took My DogBy Kate Atkinson(Reagan Arthur/Little, Brown & Co.; 371 pages; $24.99)In Started Early, Took My Dog, her fourth novel featuring ex-cop, ex-private detective Jackson Brodie, Kate Atkinson follows three plotlines in the present day and one lingering from the dark days of the Yorkshire Rippers reign of terror in the 1970s. In 1975, Constable Tracy Waterhouse and her partner, Ken Arkwright, were called to investigate a disturbing stench emanating from a locked apartment. Started Early, Took My Dog doesnt quite match the jaw-dropping misdirection of Case Studies or achieve the satisfying emotional resonance of When Will There Be Good News? Nevertheless, its a fast-paced and clever meditation on the vagaries of chance and the urge to act morally. In the course of four novels, the character has endured so many life-changing events - the bombing of his home, the killing of his sister, a divorce, a paternity suit, a train crash, a million-dollar inheritance and the

Meeting the nutritional needs of all those living today without compromising the wellbeing of future generations requires holistic thinking about the interconnected systems of agriculture, aquaculture, wild food harvest, and their home ecosystems. The future of food production and distribution will require sustainable practices that decrease water, carbon, and waste footprints; protect biodiversity on land and sea; improve the efficiency of water, energy, transportation, and waste management systems; and enhance the quality of life of those producing the food. Cornell Atkinson is bringing together Cornells core strengths in these areas with like-minded external partners to contribute to long-term, large-scale progress, one solution at a time.. ...
Increasing global efficiency of direct injection spark ignition (DISI) engine is nowadays one of the main concerns in automotive research. A conventional way to reduce DISI engine fuel consumption is through downsizing. This approach is well suited to the current homologation cycle as NEDC, but has the drawback to induce over-consumptions in customer real driving usage. Moreover, the driving cycles dedicated to EURO 6d and future regulations will evolve towards higher load operating conditions with higher particulate emissions. Therefore, efficiency of current DISI has to be strongly increased, for homologation cycle and real driving conditions. This implies to deeply understand and improve injection, mixing and flame propagation processes. This work proposes an alternative way to improve the thermodynamic efficiency of the combustion system, by coupling an increase of Compression Ratio (CR) with high levels of Exhaust Gas Recirculation (EGR) and the setup of Miller/Atkinson cycle at intake. The ...
`Repression diagnostics are a collection of methods used to find (diagnose) unusual features in a regression problem. `Although informal diagnostics have a long and respectable history, it is only in the last fifteen years or so that they have been systematically studied.

Liverpool Sound and Vision Rating 9/10. There are few finer voices than that of Midge Ure, especially when the vast majority of the evening spent in his company at the Atkinson in Southport is listening to an album that, arguably unfairly, was played against the workings of corporate turmoil and interference. There are times in life when you know that just want to hear the artist being lauded for them alone, not having an agenda pushed down their throat, its bad enough in the democracy of a band but when it comes against what is an especially beautiful solo album such as Breathe, thats when you know the agenda has got rotten.. For Midge Ure to come out on the road and highlight the album in amongst a set of Ultravox songs, solo hits and songs that somehow defy expectation and are shrouded in that true definition of the word cool could have been seen as a brave move, it could have run the risk of alienating a section of fans that empathised and sympathised with the way the Scottish singer was ...
In his documentary Do Not Resist, Craig Atkinson depicts the militarization of police in the United States. Atkinson embedded himself with numerous SWAT teams across the country and followed them on their regular deployments. John Payne interviewed Atkinson by phone in November, and the conversation has been edited for length and clarity.. John Payne: What inspired you to make a film about police militarization?. Craig Atkinson: My father was a police officer, and I think that very much influenced my curiosity. He was a SWAT officer for 13 years, during the late 80s and early 90s, which gave me a background to see that things had changed. In the aftermath of the Boston Marathon bombing, for example, he was very much in the back of my mind when I was watching how the police were treating the community as they continued to search for the Tsarnaev brothers.. They were heavily armed with equipment, and the approach that they had toward the community made them seem more like an occupying force. ...

That point was made frustratingly clear for scientists worldwide this year when several clinical trials that had held great promise based on laboratory studies yielded disappointing results.. A lack of universal standards for defining diabetes and reversal of the disease in animal studies makes it difficult to translate laboratory successes into human trials, said Mark A. Atkinson, an eminent scholar in the University of Florida College of Medicines department of pathology, immunology and laboratory medicine and co-director of the UF Diabetes Center of Excellence.. In a commentary appearing Wednesday (Aug. 17) in the journal Science Translational Medicine, Atkinson proposes criteria on which the scientific community can hinge discussions aimed at building a consensus and forging a foundation for more successful human trials.. We havent given up, we need to keep moving forward with as much passion as ever, Atkinson said. Its halftime and we have to go to the locker room and figure out what ...

Raucous Sports Breakfast radio king Alan Brazil (above) has hit back at former boss Ron Atkinson, after the controversial walking advert for sun beds criticised the fiery Scot on TV.. Big Ron, who is currently starring in a reality TV football manger programme, attacked Brazil, a player he signed for Manchester United in the early 80™s, knocking the former Scotland internationals ability.. But last night Brazil, who won two European medals and played for Scotland 13 times said: œRon was so desperate to sign me that I was afraid to pick up the phone at home in case it was him again.. œAs I recall it, Atkinson had a less than average football career and is no position to make judgements on international footballers.

Rick writes in his Ministry ToolBox : At Saddleback, we talk about the five different factors that make up a persons SHAPE: Spiritual gift(s), Heart, Abilities, Personalities, and Experiences. Why is this important? Why should we bother figuring out how God has shaped us? Ill give you five benefits. Warren then promises these five benefits from understanding your SHAPE.: reduces stress, increases success, determines how you learn, deepens satisfaction, and builds self-esteem.. Rick Warren says, The heart represents the core of your desires, hopes, interests, dreams, ambitions, and affections. The heart is the ...
Fundamental premises of modern soil mechanics theories are that soil deformations are elastic before yield and elasto-plastic after yield, and that the flow rule for plastic strains is associated. Previous attempts at experimental examinations of these premises have met several difficulties associated with elastic nonlinearity, measurement of plastic strains and identification of the current yield surface. For materials which are both elastic and for which the flow rule is associated the stress-strain matrix has particular features which are observable in special stress path laboratory tests. These special tests have been carried out on reconstituted samples of London Clay, Cowden Till and Speswhite kaolin.
Kudos to our police department. I want to correct wrong information on this blog. I have a police scanner and listen to Atkinson police calls. Last week Atkinson police were called regarding a noise complaint for power tools at Mediation Lane. Around the same time as the horrendous use of power tools (the dispatcher said it was someone power washing their house, and the person who called police took pictures of the guy washing the house. Isnt stalking illegal?), the Atkinson Police were assisting Sunoco employees close the gas station for the night, because Sunoco was burglarized recently after closing (I heard this call on my scanner too when it happened). Then a call came in for the police to respond to a medical call. After the medical call, I heard the police say they were assisting Dunkin Donuts employees close for the night. I understand why, it is very secluded and dark late night on Rte 111 where Dunkin Donuts is located. Seems to me the police were doing real police work, i.e. ...

Humanitarian Award Recipient. On Thursday, February 23rd, Villanova Universitys Office of Disability Services will present the fifth annual Fr. Bill Atkinson, OSA, Humanitarian Award to Sydney & Celeste Corcoran, survivors of the Boston Marathon Bombing Attack.. Celeste Corcoran, and her husband Kevin were at the finish line of the Boston Marathon on April 15, 2013, to watch her sister, Carmen, complete the race, but while Carmen was still two-tenths of a mile away, the first bomb detonated. Celestes legs were so badly damaged that she had to have both of them amputated, and she also had to have surgery for a ruptured right eardrum. Nearby, unbeknownst to Celeste and Kevin, their daughter, Sydney nearly bled to death after shrapnel flew into her right thigh. Before the Boston Marathon Bombings, the family thought they had experienced the worst accident; Sydney suffered a skull fracture and a brain hemorrhage in 2010 after being struck by a car while crossing a street in Hampton, N.H.

I saw how proud my father was when my brother joined active duty, he said.. Nickle served with the Minnesota National Guard and on active duty in the Marine Corps. But he wanted to earn his deployment patch, that distinctive insignia that would show he had served in a combat zone.. He got his wish, Atkinson said. But it came at a cost. During the documentary, he told Atkinson that he still has trouble sleeping.. He was excited to get his deployment patch, Atkinson said. Over the course of that deployment, he started to question whether or not it was worth it. If he died over there, his kids wouldnt have a father anymore. Just confronting mortality and whats ultimately really important in life is something I found really compelling about his story..

This retrospective study reports the outcomes of canalicular laceration repair with the Mini Monoka stent (FCI Ophthalmics) in children younger than 10 years.
The only prospective human trial studied 10 participants with spontaneous pneumothoraces of varying volumes treated with intermittent high-flow oxygen for between 9 and 38 h at a time (only detail of treatment duration given).3 The concentration of oxygen delivered was not measured but frequently observed to be around 33% at 8 l/min.4 Each patient had a daily chest x-ray from which the pneumothorax area was calculated. The resolution rate was then compared to a cohort of patients who had been treated with bed-rest only, whose resolution rate had been computed retrospectively. When in air, the resolution rate of pneumothoraces was 4.8 cm2/day, but increased with oxygen administration to 17.9 cm2/day. The rate of resolution was dependent on pneumothorax size, with larger pneumothoraces having a significantly greater reduction in area when on oxygen. There were no side effects recorded from the high concentration oxygen therapy in this small study ...
With Jerry Brown on top of the world again and talking about running for a fourth term as governor of California, I recall when I met him a decade ago. When Brown was mayor of Oakland, I attended a Milken Institue speech he gave in which he explained what he had learned as mayor. I was quite astonished, because the gist of his speech, as far as I could tell, was that being mayor of Oakland had been a most eye-opening experience for an old liberal like him, that he had concluded that the main hope for Oakland was persuading poor people to move out and for the the poor people who insisted upon staying, trying to get their kids to go to a public military school he started to get some discipline pounded into their dysfunctional heads. ...
Paediatric airway endoscopy is accepted as a diagnostic and therapeutic procedure, with an expanding number of indications and applications in children. The aim of this European Respiratory Society task force was to produce a statement on interventional bronchoscopy in children, describing the evidence available at present and current clinical practice, and identifying areas deserving further investigation. The multidisciplinary task force panel performed a systematic review of the literature, focusing on whole lung lavage, transbronchial and endobronchial biopsy, transbronchial needle aspiration with endobronchial ultrasound, foreign body extraction, balloon dilation and occlusion, laser-assisted procedures, usage of airway stents, microdebriders, cryotherapy, endoscopic intubation, application of drugs and other liquids, and caregiver perspectives ...

After spending the remainder of the night in the ER, Jameson was admitted to the hospital. They wanted to keep him medicated and determine the cause of his pain. A CT scan revealed he had suffered a mid-gut volvulus and needed emergency surgery. In the meantime, however, Jameson went into shock and was rushed to the intensive care unit. When he was stable enough, he was hurried to the operating room (OR), for what we thought would be a fairly routine intestinal resection. Later we were told Jameson was extremely lucky to have even made it through the surgery alive.. Our handsome, smart, funny teenage son now had three feet of small intestine left, and a condition known as short bowel syndrome. The surgeon explained that Jamesons situation had been much worse than he had expected; most of the small intestine had been necrotic (dead) due to a lack of blood supply. He then went on to say that Jameson might not make it through the night…the next 24 to 48 hours would be critical…he would require ...

Young children fizz with ideas. But the moment they go to school, they begin to lose the freedom to explore, take risks and experiment.. We spend our childhoods being taught the artificial skill of passing exams. We learn to give teachers what they expect. By the time we get into industry, we have been conditioned to conform. We spend our days in meetings and talk about thinking outside the box. But rarely do we step outside it.. The sad truth is that schools were never designed to produce creativity. Not many people are aware of it, but the education systems in the US and many other countries are based on the 19th-century Prussian model. Children were taught to obey, not to challenge or think creatively. Thats why you stand to attention when the teacher walks into the class. Its why from the US to China, children wear uniforms.. The system worked well for blue-collar workers - people who clocked in at factories and stood on production lines making things such as automobile engines. But in a ...

Other than this processing and manufacturing activity, the intensity of use of OA50 appears to be low. Pits are noticeably scarcer than in previous periods; excavated examples being limited to a small quantity lying to the north (Group 696) and west (Group 711) of Structure 48. The northern pits fall into two types: the majority are large, circular cuts, some 2.0m to 5.0m in diameter, and the remainder are smaller and oval in shape. As noted previously, it is possible that pit 15514 is deliberately located close to the northern terminal of a boundary represented by 25081. There certainly seems to be a tendency for the pits to favour peripheral locations within Open Area 50 and to avoid the central part occupied by Structure 48, 25081, the hearths of Group 695 and well 14984. Small pit 15368, for example, conforms to this pattern and may be the most significant of them - it occupies a near-roadside position and contains only a bronze flagon (SF2996), the deposition of which almost certainly has ...

I have always been an advocate of a lovely and special Sunday dinner. Lest I be misunderstood, let me hasten to add: a dinner mostly prepared on Saturday and not prepared on Sunday morning by the mother of the family.. In the home in which I was privileged to be born and reared, along with nine others, the Sabbath was recognized as a holy day, a very special day, and a very special dinner, as the noon meal was called in the country, was reverently and gratefully and joyously enjoyed. In fact, Sunday dinner was an institution in our home, an institution which contributed to Sabbath worship and welded us together as a family unit.. I recall that those Sunday dinners meant so much to us that when one or more of our number accepted an invitation to eat at the home of a friend, it was done with a feeling of regret that we must forego the pleasure of being with our own family, dressed up and dignified, yet joyously free, enjoying a dinner that simply could not be duplicated, a warm, appetizing dinner, ...

Yes, I wasnt suggesting that this mechanism could be used to convey the meaning of tags in say an SVG document. I was refering to (semi)linear text documents only. And pointing out that the hard-coded knowledge in a UA which tells it that an H1 is a heading, so display it like this, or generate braille like this, or produce this aural rendering... this hard-coded knowledge, which is more than styling, could actually come from a seperate, downloadable file. With this additional information, the UA could make XML just as accessible as XHTML, if not more so. Such a more generic UA could also be used in applications where XHTML is not adequate, such as with legal, medical, patent, insurance and other XML documents. Such documents are (semi) linear text but semantically richer than XHTML. nik ----- Original Message ----- From: Tantek elik ,[email protected], To: Nicholas Atkinson ,[email protected],; ,[email protected],; ,[email protected], Sent: 20 August 2002 02:57 Subject: Re: What are ...
