Humor was never intended to be taken deeply or to be saturated with implications.   Clearly, when you are dealing with an XML document, you [almost] always want to use a well-proved library to retrieve the elements of interest and serve them to you ... even when a “simpler” solution seems to be suggesting itself.   XML is a devilish beast that is always offering up more committee-bred complications, and ’tis best to let someone else wander into the fray on your behalf.   “Better libxml than me...”   Shortcuts here, well-intentioned though they may be, become a pain in the glutes.

[Eily]: well I had to google translate that
[Eily]: let me inform you that the Dutch reek translate into the Czech páchnout
[Eily]: very useful default translation :P
[Eily]: BTW LanX, you should try typing a few random chars at the beginning of each message. This will prevent expansion :P
