  Thanks for the update and great to hear that you keep your XML Users 
Group going after the summer break. I don't think the diminished 
interest in XML Users Groups or dare I say XML is a Canadian thing since 
in the Pacific Northwest Region (Washington State, Oregon, British 
Columbia) the VanX is the only XML User Group still standing. For 
example, interest in the Seattle XML SIG seems to have fizzled out 
sometime in 2001 (see http://groups.yahoo.com/group/seattle-xml ) and 
the Seattle Java XML SIG closed down sometime in 2003 (see 
http://www.sosnoski.com/jxml ) and interest in the Oregon XML SIG seems 
to have fizzled out sometime in 2003 (see 
http://groups.yahoo.com/group/oregonXML ).
