Re: XML marketing contributions
I'm not wild about any of these, but maybe, like Jon's original list, they
will give someone else a push in the right direction:
"XML: certified organic SGML"
"Faster than a SP'ding bullet, more powerful than an <H1> -- it's hypertext,
it's a database, it's XML!"
or some variation on:
"Link global, code local" [like "think global, act local"]
(actually, I kind of like that one -- or should it be: "Link globally, code
locally" -- I can't tell anymore.)
or, after Eve's nice phrase,
"XML: it's what you've been doing all along"
"XML: it's what you already know"

or just "XML is SGML natural"
