HTML5 is taking over the Web. XML and XML-based toolsets are used to create,
manage, interchange, and manipulate much of the content that is published as
HTML5. XMLers and HTML5ers may each find the other more than a little
peculiar; but it is time to get past our differences and discuss how our
differing strengths can be combined to benefit each other, our users, and the
information eco-system as a whole.

The Balisage pre-conference symposium this year will bring discussion to
Balisage of some things many of dont like and advocates for positions many of
us disagree with. If we are lucky it will also help two very different groups
of people understand each other a bit better.

Symposium description: http://www.balisage.net/HTML5-XML/index.html
Detailed program: http://www.balisage.net/HTML5-XML/symposiumProgram.html

The symposium program include two opportunities for participation:

- lightning talks, and
- a Questions and Answer session with Robin Berjon, editor of the
  W3C HTML5 specification

Come join the fray! Learn why some are telling us XML is a failure and others
are rallying support for XML on the Web.
