RE: Father of XML?

Wait, I thought that applied to mother sans father?  If we are talking
father sans mother, we would be more accurate to say "all markup
languages are immaculate".  :-)

Or we just admit that all markup languages are bastards. :-)

       Sorry if I've offended anyone with my
       gender-bending extrapolation of this silly
       "father of" metaphor.  The begetting of
       brainchildren does not require any specific
       gender to play any specific role.  It only
       requires that the roles be played, and it's
       generally pretty hard on all of the roleplayers.
