Don't want to put words in his mouth, or his keyboard, but I think Peter's
point was that his community -- chemists -- don't give a hoot whether
>start< or <start> are valid XML tags; all they care about is that (using
this example) some provision is made for "starting." Peter himself seems to
have a fine grasp of the interdependence between semantics and syntax.
