Me, either, but here are two easy verses (first and last?):

I am the very model of a modern markup oracle
I've information up-to-date and even some historical
I am a key explanitor of matters inexplicable
I've written 20 books about the proper use of XML

I always state with certainty, in categoric absolutes
When data models dictate use of elements or attributes
I normalize my Unicode by making one of several
Without regard to entities parameter or general
