I've been pushing people away from XML for years if that's what they
really want.  I can't say I mind people going elsewhere.

I do, however, mind people who think that RDF is a way to fix XML.
Maybe they could all go fix ASN.1 instead. ;->

(Value mixed content?  Then XML is probably helpful.  Don't value mixed
content?  Find something that fits your needs, and don't waste time
fixing XML.)
