| Um, how does one distinguish the following fragments?

  Perhaps you are unaware of the DTD and its role in *ML languages?  Many
  people seem to know so little about SGML and XML that what I think must
  be hostile provocations is simply sheer ignoranace of the languages.  Then
  again, many of the users of these languages are also unable to understand
  how they are supposed to design applications with them, but that is no
  excuse for not knowing the language when designing an alternative to it.
