I'm unpersuaded at the moment, but it's largely an issue of general
support; XML capable browsers etc. promise much for general distribution
if and when they are generally available.  There are a couple of areas
where that availability may change the way I do things.
	Selfishly, I'd like to see discussion of the DSSSL (Jade in
particular) processing of literate programs stay on the DSSSList, and we
do seem to have some general interest.

Thanks for the pointer; I had missed this one :-)
