I was just having a look at my referrer logs and found some referrers to an older article of mine, from 2004. Still amusing today :)
XML is female. Of course she is. XML is beautiful, XML is sexy, everybody wants a piece of her, and everyone can have a piece of her. But XML is not to own, XML is all about sharing. Perfection is also one of XML’s properties. Perfection on a higher level. It’s not about verboseness, it’s not about efficiency, it’s about openness, sharing and most of all: love. You don’t need condoms if you've got XML-DOMs.
