Wow! That has to be one of the quickest official responses to a suggested
enhancement to web tools I've ever seen. Funny, though; that the WG was
holding a f2f meeting wasn't in my horoscope yesterday... ;-)

Hmmm. Well then, how about a generic XML icon? After all, that's what XHTML
is all about, and what we're moving towards, right? And one of the first
messages in the validator's success output is "...validates as XML...".

Does anyone agree, though, that having some sort of generic icon (even if
it's not generic XHTML) would be a good thing?
