This response is really over the top. This is about an *extension* to
HTML, inspired by XML, yes, but *not* XML. I yield to no one in my
enthusiasm for MS-bashing, but this really isn't a proper case at all.
This page does not claim to be about XML.
This page does not claim to be about W3C-conformant HTML.
It's just another vendor extension. Relax, please, everyone.
