I'm writing to second the motion from Bruce Robertson and John Dawson for
a Text Handling Software Working Group. At the same time, I would like to
encourage the involvement of Gary Simon, whose call (also from ALLC-ACH98
in Debrecen) for a modular, web-based approach to constructing
text-analysis software was very convincing.

A context for this development (at least on this side of the Atlantic)
could be provided by the Instructional Management Systems Project
(www.imsproject.org) of EDUCAUSE's National Learning Infrastructure
Initiative. The IMS Project seeks to foster, by means of open standards
and metadata, the creation of tools and content modules that plug and play
in the context of the web.
