The purpose of this website is to provide information related to the ongoing work of the U.S. House of Representatives in relation to the eXtensible Markup Language (XML). Under the direction of the Senate Committee on Rules and Administration and the House Committee on Administration, the Secretary of the Senate and the Clerk of the House have worked together with the Library of Congress and the Government Printing Office to create Document Type Definition files (DTDs) for use in the creation of legislative documents using XML. As this is an ongoing project, it is important to note that the DTDs presented here have not been finalized, and may change over time. Any documents or programs created with these DTDs should be treated as beta material and not used in a production capacity.

What personal security level are you at? It should be Yellow!
Topic: Miscellaneous 11:06 am EDT, Jul  2, 2002

Senior administration officials, including Homeland Security Director Tom Ridge and Attorney General John Ashcroft, met Monday at the White House to discuss the latest information on terrorist threats. They agreed the nation is on "yellow," or "elevated," status.

A snow fence security perimeter encloses portions of the Mall around th Washington Monument in preparation for the nation's July 4 celebration.

According to the five-step color-coded threat assessment used by the White House Office of Homeland Security, yellow is the mid-point color, meaning the government considers the nation to be at a "significant risk of terrorist attacks."

"Orange," or "high," is the next level -- meaning the government considers there to be a "high risk of terrorist attack." "Red," or "severe," is the highest alert status, and means just what its name implies.

"Chad Struer has played golf with almost 20 Fortune 500 CEOs. One in three cheats, he says. Struer finds that rather peculiar, because those same CEOs hire him and his Salinas, Calif., company, USA Diligence, to investigate the honesty of start-up companies so the CEOs can decide whether to invest.

Emergency Exit - 2 People, 6 Months and a Mac
Topic: Miscellaneous 4:15 pm EDT, Jun 28, 2002

How did it happen? I'm not really sure. One minute we were swimming in stock options, slurping up Starbucks, and hauling our increasingly yuppified butts into work each day—the next we were reeling from the market collapse, shaking our heads, and feeling strangely relieved. As phone calls from newly laid-off friends flooded through the wires and co-workers started dropping like flies around our ears, we made one of the most deliciously irresponsible decisions of our adult lives: we decided to travel the world.

The hardest thing about leaving for the unknown was deciding to leave. That, and figuring out what we needed to do, check, bring. We started thinking about creating a place where would-be bohemians could go for "The Big I’s"-- information and inspiration. And that’s how was born.

Playboy's 'Women of Enron' Debuts in Houston
Topic: Miscellaneous 9:14 am EDT, Jun 27, 2002

Playboy on Wednesday introduced the stars of its "Women of Enron" issue, current and former employees of the Houston energy trading giant who show their stuff in an issue set to hit newsstands nationally on Friday.

Four of the 10 women featured in the photo spread appeared at a news conference Wednesday across the street from the corporate headquarters of Enron Corp., which filed the largest-ever U.S. bankruptcy last year after its cooked books exploded.

The four also appeared in front of the Enron offices by the ubiquitous "crooked E" sign -- in a clothed reprise of the picture that leads off the photo layout. Enron's secretive accounting prompted calls for greater corporate disclosure -- and it comes in 10 full-color pages in Playboy's August issue.

The 10 models were culled from among more than 300 who auditioned with Playboy, the flagship and namesake for Chicago-based adult media conglomerate Playboy Enterprises Inc.

The now-familiar gleaming silver towers that Enron calls home appear in the photo spread as a background for a naked Shari Daugherty, an Enron computer security administrator. Daugherty, who posed nude on the roof of a neighboring parking garage, said she has no regrets about her work for Enron or Playboy.

"I think both associations are fine. People know that Enron had the creme de la creme when they hired them," she said, adding that she thinks Playboy's reputation is classy.

Woods extends lead at U.S. Open - Tiger finishes second round with 2-under 68 despite rain
Topic: Miscellaneous 6:08 pm EDT, Jun 14, 2002

WOODS PICKED UP Friday where he left off in the first round, shooting a 2-under 68 to stand at 5-under 135 midway through the Open.
He had a five-stroke lead on a soggy, gloomy day, which left everyone else struggling just to break par.
Most of top contenders, including Sergio Garcia and Phil Mickelson, teed off late in the incessant rain, facing an already fearsome course that was dotted with impromptu rivers.
In those conditions, no one made a run at Woods. Still, he refused to declare victory.
“I’ve still got to play 36 holes,” he said. “It’s not over yet.”

Tiger birdies 18th to lead Open by 1
Topic: Miscellaneous 10:21 am EDT, Jun 14, 2002

Bethpage Black is no longer the most frightening thing about this U.S. Open. It’s the sight of Tiger Woods on his game and in the lead.
NEVER MIND THAT 16 PLAYERS didn’t record a single birdie and 15 guys couldn’t even break 80. Or that only six players broke par Thursday, the smallest number in the first round of a U.S. Open since no one did at windy Shinnecock Hills in 1986.
A beast of a course only brought out the best in the world’s No. 1 player.
“I tried to stay out of trouble as much as I could,” Woods said after a 3-under 67, breaking down a torturous day into a simple explanation.

An Open Challenge: World's best take on Bethpage Black
Topic: Miscellaneous 12:00 pm EDT, Jun 13, 2002

FARMINGDALE, N.Y. (AP) -- Bethpage State Park erected a sign on the first tee to let the public know what to expect. ``Warning: The Black Course is an extremely difficult course which is recommended only for highly skilled golfers.''

There was no need to remove the sign just because the world's best players came by for the U.S. Open.

``We all think of ourselves as highly skilled,'' Hal Sutton said Wednesday. ``I guess we're about to find out.''
