Here's why I can't get very excited about XML:

"After months and months of press-release hype and
stories about browser wars, source-code giveaways,
and religious conversions (not to mention the fiercely
heated, long, boring, tedious, stupid debates in
certain newsgroups), what have you gotten out of
Microsoft's and Netscape's 4.0 browser releases?

A 40-MB monster sitting on your hard drive? Or
exciting, dynamic content that pushes the medium
and does things that you've never seen before?
Aside from some big sites that have the resources to
produce 4.0-specific content (and a few other
valiant efforts to explore this new space), dynamic
HTML really hasn't taken off across the Net. "

That's a quote from an article on the WebMonkey site:

I think I'll wait a bit before tacking this "monster."
