I bet it is :) But think like this, do you want a monster sleeping
with you? Do you want some bloated editor just to live your life? Do
you ever want an XML/HTML browser, or a web thing to be on your box
just to do your daily *programming* things?
A documentation language is only good for documentation. Do you
ask a painter to fix your central heating system? I don't think so.
Anyway, I feel a lot better now. w3c.org deciding on everything. blah.
blah. BTW, I think it's pretty good for for the "web", but I'm
skeptical about extending your penis to be your god.
