Sorry, Tetsuya.  For someone to be entrusted with
updating the XML Apache web pages, he/she would need
to write cleanly and professionally.  This includes
taking the time to proofread written work before
submitting it (maybe even capitalizing those "i"'s.) 
Absent these traits, you end up disrespecting the
reader.

Just typing up slop and sending it out--the
unfortunate approach you took here in introducing
yourself to us--would not reflect well on our web
pages.  No one here would be in the mood to keep
rewriting what you cvs commit--it would better for the
page to be somewhat out-of-date than to be poorly
written.
