So far this list has been a great help to me, mainly thanks to the patience
of usual repliers. If it is going to degenerate into another Microsoft
bashing zone then I'm out. Frankly, the amount of time and energy spent by
developers in this organisation, and I am sure many others, exchanging petty
digs @ Microsoft is scandalous. Look it's easy ... if you don't like
Microsoft's products don't use them. You know their parser isn't fully
compliant with the spec right now, so you don't need to go to a conference
to find that out and then whinge about it. Otherwise, you can hardly blame a
commercial organisation for writing software that allows users to tightly
couple it with their existing products. My own feeling is that although
Microsoft were a little late into XML, the speed at which they are pushing
things is scary and the implementation of the spec issue, which appears to
effect pretty much all major software vendors to some extent or another,
will soon be behind us.
