In the first quarter of 1997 I and then Norbert Mikula, within a few 
weeks of each other, released Java XML parsers, both of which provided 
classes with names like Element, Attribute, Document, Text, and Entity, 
offering object-oriented access to 100% of the information content in XML.

It's a pity, BEA is usually a pretty smart company in my opinion, but 
that posting was egregiously stupid.  And who knows, quite likely this 
XML Beans stuff is actually interesting and useful.  -Tim
