   Do they crash do they...? that's a pity... :-)

I do find it odd though that you think that the fact that your format
isn't XML merits a ":-)" For most people on this list (who I assume are
here for the XML and not just for the Haikus) it means that it is not
really even a format to be considered. Why use <xx> markup at all if you
are going to be so incompatible?

That is not XML. The result of that particular markup is that unless
someone has your software they can't even parse it, still less figure
out what it means, why on earth wouldn't you mark that up as
<Impact force="345" scale="KPa"/>
