No hurt feelings here - despite the fact that I defend SGML, I'm not really sentimental about it. It just seems historically inaccurate to be told on one hand that "nobody would bother switching because SGML and XML are so similar" and on the other that "SGML doesn't matter and XML does". The two statements seem at odds with each other. -- Regards, Marcus Carr email: mcarr@a... ___________________________________________________________________ Allette Systems (Australia) www: http://www.allette.com.au ___________________________________________________________________ "Everything should be made as simple as possible, but not simpler." - Einstein
