Sorry.  In my paranoia I interpreted it as an attempt to show off your 
XML/XQuery credentials.   I will point out your previous posting, using 
the same email address, did not include that signature, so it wasn't a 
totally random conclusion.

It is easy in email on the one hand to use phrasing that can be 
mis-interpreted (especially when it comes to attitude or emotion) and on 
the other to read something into a message that was not intended, 
especially when you don't know each other well.  I've certainly done 
both ...
