VHML - Virtual Human Markup Language

Talking to Iniaes one thing I did discover (and how spooky is that) was the VHML (Virtual Human Markup Language) site.

This is an XML implementation to mark up an avatar like Halo. It includes a subset of AIML to deal with the spoken side, but also adds:

- DMML Dialogue Manager Markup Language (AIML)

- FAML Facial Animation Markup Language

- BAML Body Animation Markup Language

- SML Speech Markup Language (Sable)

- EML Emotion Markup Language

Now that looks fun! I wonder if Sitepal will support it?

The project is not only actually current, but also an EU 5th Framework project - so there may even be a participation opportunity.
