I did not misunderstand Len.  The marketplace wasn't even free to decide 
if it had a choice.  Many parts of the US are debating bilingual 
education, an official national language (we don't have one), etc., so 
your language analogy is flawed.

Having worked on many technologies that failed in the marketplace, I am 
well aware of the different meanings of standard.  I appreciate your 
advice -- "just think about that for a moment" -- thanks.  I spend hours 
contemplating and re-drafting before every XML-DEV post; doesn't everyone?

In the same spirit of friendly advice, would you please follow the 
standard quoting convention?
