At the bottom of page 38 of Sean McCown's article is a table labelled "XML
Essentials". Under the column "Supports SQL/XML", he has a "Yes" for all of the
products, including SQL Server 2000.  Is he confusing Microsoft SQLXML 3.0 with
the functions in the SQL:2003 standard?

Looking at your blog reply, his Yukon sidebar, and your TechEd presentation
("XML In The Database"), it still isn't obvious what Yukon will offer in terms
of the SQL:2003 functions (xmlagg(),  xmlconcat(), etc.).
