RE: XML 1.0 is simple. was: RE: almost four years ago....

That's why the term "markup technologies" 
was introduced to this list some years ago 
and even became the name of a GCA conference 
until someone noticed it didn't sell as well. 
It keeps me from having to explain XML vs 

Nodes is nodes; properties is properties. 
The Groves guys had it right. :-)

I'm also starting to discuss "markup" as technology, and citing basic
XML rules as the most interoperable.  XML has morphed into a marketing
term (and the power of raw markup, in many ways, forgotten), but the
underlying technology is still useful and worth promoting.
