Maybe this is the place to quote Kipling: "There are nine and sixty
ways of constructing tribal lays/ And every single one of them is
right."

Corny, maybe, but to the point.

It's not past belief - my belief, anyway - that always using a
markup language would make Andrew a poorer writer than he is using
his methods. Similarly, XML advocates probably do their best work in
a markup language.

But, then, I'm long past the point of believing six or seven
impossible things before breakfast, so what do I know?
