it was only after publishing a "QML" standard that i thought to check who else was using that acronym. unfortunately, QML is the "Quest Markup Language", "Queensland Medical Laboratory", the "Question Markup Language", the "Query Markup Language", a "Qualified Manufacturer List", the "Quality of Service Modeling Language", the "Questions Markup Language" (note: not the same as the "Question Markup Language"), and "Quick-Multi-Linc", which is trademarked. ah well, what's another QML going to hurt?
on the upside, QuotEdit is now listed on versiontracker, and it already has one mostly positive comment with a bit of well-deserved constructive criticism regarding the save-file process. i'll either fix that, or more likely do away with it entirely in the next version.
