Re:  Another Microsoft XML patent
While I've been away for basically the last two days I am just coming
back to this.  Can I just say this is some of the most interesting
reading I've had the pleasure to read in a very long time!  I am just
through some of the first few follow-ups to some of my earlier posts
and so far have found Alan Gutierrez has provided some excellent
follow-up in regards to things I had never really considered. 
Excellent!  Whats the point in getting involved with an argument if
youre not willing to listen to others view points and adjust/change
you're own when someone has presented some excellent follow-up?  I'm
listening and adjusting as we speak :)
