At last, a limerick that actually *is* a limerick.
Most of the rest of the submissions to date have waaaay
too many syllables.

My confusion is rapidly waxing,
For XML Schema's too taxing:
   I'd use DTDs
   If they had local trees --
I think I'd best switch to RELAX NG.

My corporate data's a mess!
It's all semi-structured, no less.
   But I'll be carefree
   Using XSLT

More to come....
