What? somebody selling facelifted clapped out old junk as the newest in 
technology in new packets?

That's unheard of !!

Do you think the customer will ever find out?

Anyway... pay no attention to this. I feel like xml-dev is a good
place for old men to go and have fights with their walking sticks.

ie who had the best parsers in the 1990s... who actually did
programming in the '90s. What markup was good in the '70s.

Not that there is anything wrong with that. It's certainly more
interesting than lot's of the "modern" junk that is being passed
off these days as hi-tech.

Too much of xml-dev seems to be filled with "my parser
failed when I fed it a space, why?"

Then we need an executive from some multi-billion dollar
company to explain to all of us why it is like that.

I love it... I really do....
