Re: OHS Ontology from Augment

I believe that the only version of GraphMaker that does XML is the version I
sent you. One of these days, I hope to put it up on the web for others to
download. I modified the GML classes to be XML classes, specifically with
an early version of XTM, the XML topic map dialect. Right now, it needs to
be updated to reflect the latest XTM. Haven't had time to do that yet.

GraphMaker could, in theory, be cleaned up and made into an applet, or,
perhaps it could be constructed to output SVG so that it could be coupled
into a servlet. Lots to think about there.
