These employers may be overly optimistic. Last night I gave an advanced XML presentation to a large audience of uber-geek Linux folks. Based on post-talk discussion, I suspect only about 30-40% were reasonably conversant with XML prior to that evening. If I'd realized that in advance I would have pitched the talk at a slightly lower level. It's certainly true that XML is more broadly understood in the community than it was five years ago. However, I don't think it's yet reached the level of ubiquity of C or Java. -- Elliotte Rusty Harold elharo@m...
