XML tags are just a cheap rip-off of PHP tags

PHP has been around long before you started working on XML, so don't 
denie you stold their tags.

<? ...... ?>  Couldn't you come up with something else?

If a page ends in .php there is absoluty NO WAY to decleare XML with 
your little
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="ISO-8859-1"?> tag.

Don't you realize that by doing this, you screwed yourself.  Because 
very few people will use that tag, and thus its death will come quick.  
The only pages that can use that tag are pages that end in .html or .asp 
which are the second and their most common extensions.  .php is quickly 
becomming number one in the extension that people use for their sites.

Now don't brush me off like you did once before when I brought this up.  
You people really need to realize that you aren't the smartest people on 
Earth, and your word isn't law, and you aren't God.

P.S. I don't want that moron spartanicus (spartanicus.3@ntlworld.ie) to 
comment, he doesn't know anything.  He's just a little sissy punk whom 
can talk big but can't back anything up.
