A suggestion which doesn't dismiss XML, but warns users and web  
developers that there are important consequences of choosing XML.


         Authors and Web developers, wishing to use XML on the
         Web, are encouraged to create quality control
         preempting publication. The draconian error handling
         rules of XML push Web developers to have a strict
         quality control process before publishing. Every
         inputs by user in the publishing workflow will have
         to be properly checked and validated.
