RosettaNet

Named after the ancient Rosetta stone, which helped decipher hieroglyphics. A non-profit organization (www.rosettanet.org) that seeks to implement standards for supply-chain (manager-supplier) transactions on the Internet. Created in Winter 1998, the group includes companies like American Express, Microsoft, Netscape, and IBM, and is working to standardize labels for elements like product descriptions, part numbers, pricing data, and inventory status. The group hopes to implement many of its goals through XML, a mark-up language that lets programmers classify information with tags.
