You need their business. Boy, you sure know how to twist words around for the benefit of your argument. My point, which you conveniently ignored, is that any reasonable interpretation of this list's charter clearly includes "the programmer", which contradicts Walter Perry's earlier plea: "XML-DEV is, and should be, finally about the development of skilled XML--that is, markup--and much less about the ancillary business of implementing appropriate algorithms for processing the wonderful subtleties which the markup grows to describe." A few STRONGLY VOICED "markup wonks", a majority does not make. The truth is, not as many "programmers" have the leisure to participate here (although MANY lurk) because they're too busy building programs for you guys. ;-) -aaron http://staff.develop.com/aarons
