Yep. Now, what is the short sweet clear language that tells
the executive why he must require his programmers or IS specialists
to switch to this when what they have looks a lot like this
and is working? What do we say when he says, "But my browser
vendor says this is 'stupid', slows down the system, and they
will never support it"? How do we convince him that it is
worth the extra money and considerable risk to move off of
working platforms onto other platforms just to get closed
tags, obscure syntax, and fatter files?
Not kidding. That example above goes to the heart of what XML does and
can bring to the party, and the mood of the host.
