   RE: [xml-dev] W3C Schema: Resistance is Futile, says Don Box

How would HumanML have changed the meaning of the fact that the writer of the column decided to provide a direct quote without context? If the author wasn't bothered enough to add an adverb like 'jokingly', 'sardonically', 'ironically', 'humorously', etc before the quote what makes you think he'd take even more effort to write some markup to surround the quote and have it rendered with a smiley :) or some other similar visual clue that would then probably vary from browser to browser.
