is XML

In a bold move towards overkill, is now completely constructed in XML and transformed by XSLT and CSS. What does this mean to you? Probably not a damned thing. But for me it's a way to hone my mad skillz as a web guru by needlessly utilizing a cutting-edge technology.

Could this page have been created using plain ol' HTML? Absolutely. But what fun would that be? I was reading a tutorial on XML and the writer said that because of the complications with using XML (eXtensible Markup Language) and XSLT (eXtensible Stylesheet Language Transformation) you probably wouldn't see too many homepages being written in XML. I heard the call. I busted it up.

Check out the W3C's XML In 10 Points that'll give you a brief overview of this exciting technology.

So while I lay the smack-down on XML, I'll be converting all of the old material into XML files, able to be imported and exported into all sorts of different media and devices. just got a lot more portable.
