Can someone call themselves the "best source" of online information and not talk about XML?

Ref And to think all this time, we were told that HTML was out.

Looks like that's what they're still teaching. Why is that?

Oh, that's right! The "new users" don't even know how to turn on the computer. And to think people in the RSS community like to tell "newbies" that they just don't understand.

Brilliant!

Here's a clue: Design your system so that it is transparent. The goal is to create something that facilities communication, not frustrates people to no end.

Right now, you're creating systems for the "pre-existing experts." There are "to be born generations" of people who will not want to learn XML, and simply want to 'get the information" related to 'what they are interested in."

Like cats.
