RE: malfunctioning, evil adult as XML

RE:  malfunctioning
Erik doesn't take prisoners.  Never did.  To his 
credit, he was a prodigious and mighty worker for 
SGML and on the comp.text.sgml list.  I'm rather 
glad he continues to blaze brightly.  "Shine on 
you crazy diamond."

OTW, what James said about attributes.  We spent 
far too much time in X3D arguing trying to explain 
the impedance mismatches of VRML fields (where 
fields can have objects) to XML attributes. My 
reservation here is that explaining attributes 
only seems to be a problem when talking to a 
well-trained programmer.  Humans don't seem 
to have problems with them at all.  Look at the 
uptake of languages like HTML which make considerable 
use of them.  So as a bridge between the programming
world and the humans, markup works remarkably well 
and we should be cautious when the programming 
language experts start to fix it.  

The web is not meant to be a programmer's paradise, 
or at least, that isn't what made it useful to so

Hmm... just looks like flamewar bait to me.  Or maybe I just lost sight of
the substance among all that noise.
