   RE: [xml-dev] [ANN] XML Limerick Competition

[ Lists Home | Date Index | Thread Index ]

Not very good, but I couldn't resist :)

There was a young fella from Bath
who queried his elements by path

especially with XQuery incurring much wrath

I prefer my documents well-formed
Following rules so they are never deformed
until one day
to my utter dismay
I found they had suddenly transformed
