Yours is uglier. You're just saying that to impress.... :-) Come on Bob, don't be shy in expressing your feelings... you can tell us how you really feel..... I won't be offended... In any case, functionality in data representation is way more important than cosmetics. Data representation is not about beauty or ugliness. It's about being able to transport a particular set of data from one place to another and with a high degree of accuracy, decode the information and process it with as little complexity and ambiguity as possible. While it may not be beautiful, concise and efficient for transmission of business information it is. And these are the truly important criteria for judging whether a markup style is useful or not. Look at the first automobiles... or aeroplanes.. were they beautiful..? No way... but somebody eventually put nice panels on them and all worked out ok in the long run.... likewise with this.. maybe we just need time to give our eyes time to adjust to the new form...
