XML Aversion

I don't really like XML. But not because of any dislike of the formatting itself or the purpose or anything, it's at a different level, just a general unnerve with the the language. I don't know if I can really explain it, I just am so accustom to the rigid setting of HTML, where everything has an exact purpose and meaning, that the openness of XML is just rather disconcerting. It's like sitting down and speaking, but you can't be sure that the words you use will mean the same thing to someone else. I could say duck, and someone would think it was soap, and someone else would think I meant lightbulb.

Plus it's freaking hard to parse.
