DanielZhou 7 Posted July 17, 2013 Share Posted July 17, 2013 I'm a developer myself. From an engineering perspective, I think the next major release of EN should ditch ENML and use HTML as internal storage instead. Main benefits:You can easily find many open source software that render/display HTML and reuse the code, than writing/maintaining a new engine to handle ENML.It should easily fix bugs such as: http://discussion.evernote.com/topic/23701-bullet-points-never-seem-to-work-as-expected/, or include readily available features such as: http://discussion.evernote.com/topic/22876-using-anchors-within-notes-hyperlinking-between-notes/It's easy for users to import/export notes.I understand that ENML gives EN more control and perhaps better structured internally. But the development team would spend too much time re-inventing the wheel, and the users have to suffer from some major bugs left unfixed and the limited features. In the long run, it would be beneficial to EN as a business to adopt open standard such as HTML rather than sticking to a proprietary ENML. Link to comment
