The tone of this note is off base. XML is SGML. SGML is for interchanging information. That one or more people might believe it worth investigating the use of SGML for encoding detailed structures of a style sheet is quite legitimate. The obtuse criticisim that the effort is misguided because it doesn't try to overload C syntax, is not, IMHO, a legitimately stated concern.
