Oh my god... I feel so dumb... I edit all my XML in UltraEdit (nifty
text editor for Win32) with none of its gui features enabled (no
taglist, no sintax highlight... sorry, old school!) I'll never remember
100 tag names...
I need to keep the HTML reference (HTMLib!) on any computer I use
because I can't remember the tag names... 100 tags scare the bejesus out
of me :) :) :)

I envy those who can do it... :(
