That's also changing pretty rapidly.

I'd be _very_ cautious about looking down on JavaScript developers, and 
not only because I am one.  What's that I heard recently?  "It used to 
be that if you used JavaScript, no one took you seriously.  Now no one 
takes you seriously if you _don't_ use JavaScript."

One thing XML could really stand to lose is its condescension toward the 
greater Web world.  It was here when I arrived, and doesn't seem to have 
melted away.
