While this is true, knowledge of the "pizza chef" (which probably needs 
additional explanation for anyone who isn't already aware of it [along with 
the grand tradition of food metaphors within the TEI culture]) is not 
exactly wide-spread.  But like so many other DTDs developed with 
interchange as a primary goal, the TEI DTD can be intimidating to anyone 
who isn't intimately familiar with its gory details -- and a certain amount 
of familiarity with the gory details will also help someone trying to use 
the pizza chef.
