Granted.  I always send myself what I expect, though.  As for "why use
XML at all", because there are downstream people who expect it -- my
fgrep reads and routes but does not in any way consume the XML.

I am expressing my opinion.  When my            John Cowan
honorable and gallant friend is called,         jcowan@reutershealth.com
he will express his opinion.  This is           http://www.ccil.org/~cowan
the process which we call Debate.                   --Winston Churchill
