A Programming Paradox
(via KeithBa's Blog)

I'm finding the evolution of XML more than a little ironic. How far can that syntax be stretched? Should it be?

At ICFP'2000 in Montreal, Philip Wadler sported a T-shirt that displayed </XML> on the front and (LISP) on the back.

I love it. "Stop XML" is that how it would be pronounced? "End of XML"?
