MIME vs. HyTime

Mon, 30 Nov 92 19:27:50 PST

I claim no expertise on HyTime, but I believe the intent
is to allow multimedia data in an SGML DTD. Given Dan's
current efforts to make HTML a true DTD, it seems like
HyTime tags might be an easier addition than incorporating
HTML as a MIME datatype. Has anyone looked at HyTime vs.
MIME? I guess I'm wondering about this for the mail world
as well, since there is already a great deal of commercial
interest in SGML-ifying all documents.
