The word "troll" reminds me that xml-dev is one of the few places on the net 
where the participants don't resort to calling each other nazis after a few 
iterations of the discussion.  I say long may that continue.  If the price 
of that is excessive courtesy in the face of questions that some may 
consider obvious I have no problem with that.  (Plato, or Aristotle, or one 
of those Greek chaps wouldn't disagree either!)
