Huh? I don't think most or any of wiki dialects could
be described by SGML, so how would xml adoption reduce
SGML adoption for wikis? Or do you think wikis could
perhaps have developed to use the angle brackets
instead of currently used short-hand notations (yes,
some ugly wikis use tags, for apparently no good
reason, along with non-tag markup -- if you want
cheap-o tags, just use HTML)?
