Thanks to Adam Rogers at Wired for this reference to the Transportation Research Board's participation solicitation for XML Schemas for Exchange of Transportation Data.

XML tells the web browser software about the structure and type of information it's displaying, distinguishing content from format by adding metadata.

We predicted that planning specialties would begin developing their own XML schemas in a 1999 article for APA's Planning magazine, 'X' Marks the Spot.

I wonder how long it will be until we get a schema for planning?
