XML has always appeared as a very complex thing which I haven't needed
to use for my very simple web site! Can any one recommend a good primer

Yes, it may be evil, but the darker side is very appealing. Just like
small talk seams appeally. A OO language where everything is an object,
it just makes sense, the way the world works is to pass messages
(instructions, sentences etc...) between objects (humans, animals,
ONe language I don't want to learn is C++.
I like the quotes on the smalltalk website
"I invented the term Object-Oriented, and I can tell you I did not have
C++ in mind."
and my personally favourites
"C++ : an octopus made by nailing extra legs onto a dog"
"Claiming Java is easier than C++ is like saying that K2 is shorter
Larry O'Brien (editor, Software Development)
I Am amazed that there is such a holy war about programming languages,
particully the language people first learnt was there favourite and all
others are programmed as if they were using the first language.
