[xml-dev] Murphy on XML


	After lurking around this list and reading much of the discussions
around XML- related topics, I begin to realize the genius of Murphy.  Below
is my collection of Murphy's Laws which can be applied to XML.
Murphy's Laws on XML
*	Whenever a system becomes completely defined, some damn fool
discovers something which either abolishes the system or expands it beyond
*	New systems generate new problems. 
*	After all is said and done, a hell of a lot more is said than done. 
*	A complex system that works is invariably found to have evolved from
a simple system that works. 
*	Work smarder and not harder and be careful of yor speling. 
*	Any simple theory will be worded in the most complicated way. 
*	A difficult task will be halted near completion by one tiny,
previously insignificant detail. 
*	There is never time to do it right, but always time to do it over. 
*	The remaining work to finish in order to reach your goal increases
as the deadline approaches. 
*	Each profession talks to itself in it's own language, apparently
there is no Rosetta Stone. 
*	Don't fix something that ain't broke, 'cause you'll break it and you
still can't fix it 
*	Dobie's Dogma:
	If you are not thoroughly confused, you have not been thoroughly
*	Never trust modern technology. Trust it only when it is old

Hope all is well.
