Thank you.  This Inner/OuterXml stuff is just the old document.write() of
Javascript in new clothes.  The basic premise is tag soup: writing a bunch
of tags directly into what is supposed to be a structured object.  Anyone
who thinks Inner/OuterXml is "useful" hasn't shaken off a mentality that
is ultimately hostile to XML use.  Which means that, as usual:
