I must admit that I haven't been excited over XHTML.  It actually goes
back to HTML 4.0 for me.  I was quite disappointed with the size and
giving in to frames etc.

It was also about this time I started to learn aobut WebSGML and
Architectural forms.  I've more or less come to the conclusion that the
W3C is reinventing the wheel, and not doing a very good joba with it
forms, WebSGML, groves, HyTime etc., all are better products than DOM,
XLINK, XML, etc. (IMHO).

So I want to focus on figuring out how to use these tools, rather that
watch the W3C walk down the wrong path. (IMHO again).

This is why I'm, personally, not excited over XHTML.
