I used the phrase "XML is the new ASCII" at a number of conferences 
through 1997-1998 when talking about the DOM. Probably independent 
invention would be my guess; it's one of those obvious things. I know 
that right after I started using it, so did Tim Bray and then Jon Bosak, 
so it hit a chord at the time. Maybe, since XML is now so widely 
implemented, it's time to come up with a new slogan ;-)
