But I'm not tempted to give up Unix in favor of Windows, structure in
favor of presentation, source in favor of shrink wrap, or Emacs in
favor of...anything else, so I'm not sure I'm statistically
significant. :-)

In counterpoint, I have given up SGML in favor of XML. Hmph. I don't
know what that means.

                                        Be seeing you,

P.S. You'll note that I almost succeeded in resisting the temptation
to put the phrase "DocBook in favor of TEI" in this email message.
Almost. Was it Oscar Wilde who said, "I can resist anything except
temptation?" :-)
