"Will projecting Windows Terminal screens across the Internet,
as many ASPs do today, soon be outmoded? Many IT analysts say yes,
when Java matures. But Microsoft has other plans, not with
terminals but Internet Explorer (IE). Enter the as-yet unannounced,
unnamed HTML Office."
"So here's the scenario, believe it or not.
HTML/XML is the new Office presentation layer and the browser
is its display device. Except for IE, 32-bit Windows is gone. With
HTML Office, the hard work happens at the other end of the wire on
a Windows 2000 server, probably using the platform's Internet
Information Server (IIS) and Microsoft's SQL Server database."
"And, if history is any guide, the company will find some way of
leveraging its Exchange Server into the bargain under the
"knowledge management" banner. So if HTML Office ever sees the
light of day, it could be the forerunner of Office.NET"
