Middleware is a kind of American stretchable undergarment, for restraining bellies and all the big fat bottoms. For obvious reasons it does not come in a size S (small): the little man does't really need middleware. So it only needs to fit sizes X, M, and L. In Canada, where there are strict laws prohibiting one thing and enforcing the other, they have do have S, and also G (Grande) instead of the American X. Probably because of the cold, the rich mix of cultures, etc. etc., this SGML middleware is rather more elaborate than the XML middleware. Because it is based on ISO standards, XML middleware can be enjoyed by Europeans and people from many different countries too, though in some Asian countries there are attempts to relax the design, since the original is often felt to be too loose for some types and to restricting for others. Pundits complain that XML middleware is just a silly fashion, because of its Draconian design: if anything gets out-of-place the whole thing falls apart (often with the characteristic sound "WAP" so amusing to children.) I hope this helps. Rick Jelliffe
