The first draft includes basic log graphics entities and can be extended in the future to cover a richer suite of objects. XML promises a system and software independent means of exchanging log descriptions.
Log drafting information is isolated from the log data itself so that the same presentation format could be applied to many different data sets. A preliminary XML standard has been developed by Kanai Pathak of Schlumberger where XML is used to underpin some of the new Knowledge Work E&P document sharing initiatives. More from Cary Purdy (firstname.lastname@example.org).
