Hi paul...

He he he...Would not that also describe HTML? I somehow believe that HTML is even a more perfect representation of chaos than XML. I even call it the perfect class in an OO perspective: a perfect stack of various concepts designed for presentation...Still I respect HTML because, it, at least does not have any other pretention than presenting...
