"Tim Berners-Lee presented his vision of a nextgen Web at the Eighth International World Wide Web Conference... in Toronto."

"In Toronto, Berners-Lee told us that the old Web shares information among people using documents, whereas the new Semantic Web shares information among computers using data.

"For the old Web, he devised HTML to publish information for human consumption, carefully separating content from presentation. For The Semantic Web, Berners-Lee leads work on the Extensible Markup Language (XML), carefully separating content, presentation, and meaning (semantics) for software consumption.

"XML 1.0 was approved by W3C in 1998."
