My point is, I'm not going to "learn XML and XML technology,"
in order to write documents. If I have to "learn" a "technology"
instead of that technology evolving to support my needs, I'm
not likely to adopt it. And neither are most other writers whose
companies grumble about why they need to have a copy of
FrameMaker or Acrobat Pro instead of being able to work in
Word and some open source PDF printer driver.

To make any headway in learning XML and XML technologies you have to have
to understand these most basic of principles first.
