   RE: Why XML over ASN Today (WAS RE: Another Question)

All true, Linda.  All true, but precisely 
how SGML lost the markup hegemony to 
the simpler but easily learned tech.  If 
you've been here long enough, you know I 
always railed against the "XML is Easier 
Than SGML" posts because it isn't that much 
easier when as you say, all the siblings are 
accounted for. OTOH, I tried for a decade to 
grok everything coming from ISO and it was 
very tough to do.  This all seems easier and 
that is just an illusion or practice making 

But pay no attention to me.  The bean counters just 
visited my office and labeled my node:  666. (True!)
After all these years of denying the obvious 
signs, (the goatee, the picture of Samantha 
Stevens on my screen, the raging urge to 
dominate the world, the markup hidden now 
exposed by my once long and now thinning locks), 
it turns out that my father in law was right about me.
Guess I'll have to relax into my destiny 
and get on with Armageddon.  First stop, Redmond! 
I need like minded demons to start the fight 
with ancient hammers.

There's lots to be said for XML in the proper role, but I must admit, as a
"metal" programmer (and an old one at that), I do place some value on
interface performance and so do my customers.
