To parody A comment in Lingua Franca on the history of the City of Algiers (1852) cited by Schuchardt (1909)

[SGML came, cannonaded, and left. HTML came, cannonaded heavily, and left. XML came , blew their bugles, and captured it.]
As for Crowbar's francish statement, I wish he'd used a ResourceBundle instead of a Static ;-)

Crowbar's posts are hilarious: keep up the good work.
It's also fun for me to see that Francois "Padawan" already commented the post: we're old friends in real life, had dinner together a few weeks ago, and I very often see his comments in many weblog entries I read. I really need to write my foaf file !
