Funnily enough, if you go back 3 years, and substitute "SGML" for
"XML" and "XML" for "SML", you get the discussions many of us
were having about why XML was an advantage over SGML...
mostly, that XML was what most people thought SGML was, or
should have been.
So SML is 20% of 20% of SGML? Hmmm, does 4% of SGML
deliver 64% of the usefulness?
