Selecting an Icon for XML and/or XSL

It was suggested on the lists xml-dev and xsl-list that there be Icons that folks working with XML and XSL could put on their web sites to advertise the underlying technologies. So we decided to have "competition". This page is the result of that competition.

Submission of icons for this "competition" is now closed. Voting will begin when Sean Brown has rehosted this page onto his server. Sean will make an announcement to the lists when this is ready. In the meantime, the submit button this page has been disabled.

Many Thanks to the following for submitting icons.

The icons shown below are the intellectual property of their respective designers. All of the designers have given their permission for their work to be used freely, as long as the icons remain unchanged.

The voting system is in three categories, as follows

1. Best XML icon.
2. Best XML/XSL icon.
3. Best XML/CSS icon.

One vote will be accepted for each category.

Each image is a link to description to the details of that image, i.e. the designer name and contact details, the dimensions and size of the image, the type of image, etc. Also, the ALT text for each image contains a summary of the image parameters.

This is nice eye candy, but I have a strong suggestion for all. Please DO NOT create any
materials whether graphics, documents, books, articles, software or otherwise that furthers
the confusion about XML declarations. Section 2.8 of the XML spec is clear that the
declaration is lower case, i.e. <?xml version="1.0"?>

While the graphics are not XML declarations, they do imply that one should use an uppercase
XML as the root element of a document. This may confuse new users who would be tempted to do
this:

<?XML version="1.0"?>
<XML>
<foo>bar</foo>
</XML>


Am I anal retentive? Yes I am. And so is XML when it comes to syntax. This very thing also
causes problems for new users of XML who are used to forgiving HTML parsers.

Jonathan.

Nice to see all this creativity, but the "powered by" text has to go.
XML is per definition *internationalized* and designed for use on
the WORLD WIDE web... so English slogans are really inappropriate. -Tim
