But I see Java related questions all the time and rarely see, say, a C#
question about XML. Occassionally I'll see an MSXML question, such as when
it differs in schema validation from other parsers or XMLSpy. Maybe I'm off,
but it seems to happen more often then not.

That I almost never see, particularly when it's a java-related question. If
someone has a question about how x-parser is used in Java, no one says
they're on the wrong board, go to Sun's board (though thinking about it, I
think I have seen such responses when a Microsoft tech-question is asked).

But I think I had my question answered, I should be frequenting this mailing
list as well as the MS boards. My main point was if there were any other
lists that I should be aware of...
