Think of it as a koan. If only I could understand the sound of one hand 
clapping and whether a dog has Buddha-nature or not, I would understand 
more of xml-dev than I do :-)

Ahh, maybe a new way to waste time, since haiku and limericks are passe.  
Who can come up with a koan that incorporates the most profound, but subtle 
and hidden, truth about XML?

Len will probably win hands-down. :-)
