Title: A Review of XML-Compliant User Interface Description Languages.
Conference: Conf. on Design, Specification, and Verification of Interactive Systems DSV-IS2003. Madeira, 4-6 June 2003.

A review of XML-compliant user interface description language is produced that compares a significant selection of various languages addressing different goals, such as multiplatform-user interfaces, device-independence, context delivery, and user interfaces virtually defined. There has been a long histor and tradition to attempt to capture the essence of user interfaces at various levels of abstraction for different purposes. The return of this question today gaind more attraction, along woth the dissimination of XML markup languages, and gives birth to many proposal for a new user interface description language. Consequently, there is a need to conduct an in-dept analysis of features that make all these proposal discriminant and appropriate for significant subset of such languages based on an analysis grid and user iinterfaces that we tried to implement across these languages.
