Precisely.  It is a "don't use it if you 
don't need it but don't throw it away in 
case you do" philosophy.  There is a long thread 
in Robin Cover's OASIS page on this 
and many of the other subjects that 
this poster brings up.   I humbly submit 
that while all questions are welcome, it 
is also a good thing to review the archived 
material that Robin maintains for basic 
XML questions.  Keep in mind that XML as 
a meta language has to meet a bewildering 
array of requirements for applications, and 
because of that, Tim's "just small enough" 
is on the money.

Beginners always ask this question.
Those with a little experience express their opinions passionately.
Experts tell you there is no right answer.
