Yes, but they would all involve having fairly concrete vision of the endgame
requirements during development. You would be one member of a small group that I
could be convinced has that kind of vision about XML and all the related bits and
pieces. I certainly don't and I'm not embarrassed to admit it, because I doubt if a
great number of people do. Nonetheless, as I mentioned in my previous post, I'm
optimistic about the eventual outcome.
