what does access mean
Aah Simon, you keep dancing this dance. To most programmers [in fact to almost every one I've interacted with] XML is about structured data not about markup. Those of us who cater to programmers want to make their lives easier and APIs like the W3C DOM and SAX do not go far enough.

	I think it's a side-effect of watching people who claim they have a clue
	about XML demonstrate repeatedly that the only way they see XML is
	through glasses that have nothing to do with markup.
	Bosworth keeps saying what programmers want to hear, whether or not it
	makes any sense for the non-programming medium he's supposedly
	describing.  It's about as exciting as listening to Joe Lieberman talk
	about what's wrong with television.
	At least I haven't seen Bosworth make any grand claims to have "the
	essence of XML".
