Well, I gave up on coming up with a good name so I'm taking your advice and
using DX, for Dynamic Xml language.  I had a number of cute names like
groovy but I just couldn't stand the thought of a cute name.  I also had
acronyms like UDXL but that would get lost in the sea of acronyms.  So my
web-site will be and all will be well.

Does anyone know of any conflicts for DX?  Any existing software projects?
Any languages?  I know all about all the ham radio stuff but I assume that
is a non-issue.
