Old site

View and extract only the data you want.
Before viewing XML data, you get to control its layout by selecting and/or re-ordering table columns.

Once your selected table is created, it can be imported into desktop applications such as Microsoft Excel ("From Web" in the Data menu) or saved as an XML file for later use. For developers, this site can pre-mashup XML that's already on the web to make the data easier to re-use.

⊹ Allow users to manipulate XML data-centric datasets that occur anywhere on the web
⊹ Allow users to join together XML data-centric files that use the same document type (e.g., roll-call votes)
⊹ Allow users to join together XML data-centric files that have common data variables but not the same document type (e.g., the Rosetta Stone files...the next step)
⊹ Provide for a semantic organization of the datasets via Wikipedia links and longer term convert this information to RDF

You know you never do it alone--whether it's someone else's idea or a software example or some reusable code-- so here's a shout out to some folks who have helped me knowingly or unknowingly (in no specific order). Thanks!
