Me and my browser, we don't understand these SGML tricks.

That's why I like XHTML better than HTML, and it's quite
easy to create XHTML 1.0 pages visible with "any" browser,
where "any" includes my good old Netscape 3.x.

It's also easy to create scripts for XHTML, parsing XML
is straight forward, unlike SGML.
