RE: [xml-dev] Interest in XML is pretty steady

Indeed interesting, and I have no idea why is that. Either we are way ahead of other European countries in adoption of XML, or way below and everybody is trying to find out what this XML thing is and where to buy it. Not sure what is more likely.

I've always been very sceptical about Google trends. The gradual decline 
in the number of queries for a term like "XML" doesn't surprise me (the 
more documents there are that mention XML, the less useful it becomes as 
a search term). What does surprise me is the geographical spread. For 
example, the Czech Republic always features near the top of the list, 
way above all other European countries, and that simply doesn't square 
with any other indicators (such as download stats for open source 
software). Anyone have an explanation? Perhaps there's some robot in the 
Czech Republic that is feeding searches through to Google?
