This triggered off something that I wanted to post in response to some recent
but now-lost posting on XML-DEV.
There is a difference between a notation such as XML being human-readable
and structure/data expressed as XML documents being human-comprehensible.
One might almost say that the more the markup is difficult to comprehend,
the more headstart developers have that is at least the document is readable.
