Thank you for saying that.  This point needs to be made regularly.

Strings of text, whatever form they take, have the meanings we give 
them.  We can certainly build systems around our expectations of those 
meanings, and hope we share those meanings, but let's always be cautious 
about just how tightly we can pin down any meaning.
