I'd agree with that! Although most of you here on XML-DEV probably think 
of me as rabidly anti-XML, that's just because I disagree with using it 
for data interchange - things like DocBook are much easier to do in XML 
than SGML, an absolute pleasure. I'd choose DocBook/XML in Emacs over 
Word (for writing books, anyway - letters really need a different 
document structure) any day!
