RE: XML.COM: How I Learned to Love daBomb

Most will miss the "of"s and the one at the
the end of the line.

One time at Redstone, I came in very early 
and hid easter eggs.  I put a note on the 
coke machine that offered $25 to whoever 
found the most eggs and a bonus $50 to whoever 
found The Eye Of Jupiter.  The winner of the 
first prize took only ten minutes.  No one 
found the Eye.  Why?  It was on the Exit 
sign over a door behind the coke machine in plain view. 
A door behind a coke machine quits being a 
door and people train themselves to quit 
seeing the sign.  And there was the promise 
of money to distract them.

SGML is a door.  Over time, it became 
hidden behind a machine.  You had to 
know it was there, but by the time 
that became important, there was No Exit.

Did they all miss the same ones?
