Re: A little wish for short end tags (Was: RE: SDD bogus)
maybe i've been writing lisp too long, and i've even come to trust my text editor's ability to balance parens, but even before the days of emacs and co., reading (and indenting, if need be) for balancing became second nature. i won't repeat paul graham's argument from "on lisp" here, but it came down to "you end up reading shapes, not parentheses. if you get to need to count the parentheses, the cause is lost anyway..." besides, the editors i've seen for c and java these days not only blink braces, they even display them in pretty colors. shouldn't one expect the same of xml editors - to the extent that they're not wysiwyg?
