I, too, have been reading a lot about XML and am having a hard time figuring
out what it's really good for. (Sort of sounds like one of those things that
will become useful some day when all the browsers support it.) As far as
relating to technical writing, I hadn't heard that aspect mentioned until
you brought it up.

Since I'm a technical writer and Web developer, I'd sure like to know what
you do find out about it.
