The "X" in "XHTML" has a significance though. It means "based on XML rather than (almost) on SGML".

There'd be no equivalent for Perl vs XPerl. Plus, XPerl sounds like "the former Perl" when you pronounce it.

[Corion]: ambrus: I did that in 2012 and 2013, to try it out, and I found the available time to be worth more to me than the money
[Corion]: I've started that again this month (now forever instead of a limited time), and it already destresses me a lot
[holli]: There are Anti Vaxxer weeks at IKEA.
[Corion]: Of course, it's a 20% cut in the money I receive, while the work doesn't necessarily reduce at all, but my approach is to make the work take longer instead of fitting 5 days worth of work into 4
[holli]: 50% off all children coffins.
[Corion]: holli: Ooof :)
[hippo]: Cut should beless than 20% after tax, though. :-)
[Corion]: hippo: Yeah, but at least two years ago, it still was close enough to 20% cut
[Corion]: But I have a very positive experience with a four day workweek and a three day weekend. I can't easily go back though to full money.
[Corion]: That is easy without having to pay for a house, a wife or children though. If I had any of these, or any two of these, the decision wouldn't be that easy.
