My suspicion is that XML looks like whatever you came from. If you're an RDBMS person, it seems like an odd attempt at RDBMS (see Fabian Pascal for this.) If you're a hierarchical DBMS person, it's an odd HDBMS thing. If you're an HTML person, it's HTML where you pick the tags. If you're an OOP person, it's just an object serialization (see Don Box's early XML writings). The only way I know to really survive that is to come from all the above; in other words, to be a dilletante. I guess I plead guilty on that. -- Simon St.Laurent Ring around the content, a pocket full of brackets Errors, errors, all fall down! http://simonstl.com -- http://monasticxml.org
