That's also changing pretty rapidly.

I'd be _very_ cautious about looking down on JavaScript developers, and not only because I am one.  What's that I heard recently?  "It used to be that if you used JavaScript, no one took you seriously.  Now no one takes you seriously if you _don't_ use JavaScript."

One thing XML could really stand to lose is its condescension toward the greater Web world.  It was here when I arrived, and doesn't seem to have melted away.
