RE: [xml-dev] RE: Encoding charset of HTTP Basic Authentication

Not them, Peter.  Of course they're buggers.  

Us.  XML is a sweet bit of thinking that pays off regardless of how badly
they bugger all else.  XML doesn't care.

Sorry, Len. Not a chance. Politicos from school board level upwards to 
the White House can be -- and are being -- bought by companies, and will 
vote whatever way their paymasters tell them. Most of them don't appear 
to be very bright, either, and easily fall for the disinformation 
peddled by their corporate controllers, as we can and will see on both 
sides in the upcoming elections.

Happy days. "Stick with IBM, son, they'll look after you."
