Well said Sir. I have few interoperability problems with the XML systems I 
design because
I stay very clear of the XML envelope. If it had a name it would be 
something like
"subset of common XML". It does not have a name - formal or colloquial - and
that is unfortunate.  The <sht missing="i"/> hits the fan when I need to
process XML not under my control. Some of the XML coming over the wire
pushes the envelope and that is where the trouble starts.

Monastically yours,
