RE: Just a Little Explanaton for Veering (RE: Blueberry/Unicode/ XML)

FMI, has anyone seen a widely distributed XML application that crosses national and linguistic borders in which the element names are in any language other than English? In every example I can think of, -- SVG, XHTML, Docbook, CDF, RSS, Schemas, WML, OFX, and many, many others -- the element and attribute names are clearly derived from English, never from French or German or Italian, much less non-Roman languages like Russian, Greek, or Chinese. Can anyone think of a counterexample?
