I don't like XML.

No, wait, let me restate that. I hate XML.

No, wait, let me restate that. I despise the over-engineered, over-verbose, over-committeed (that isn't a typo), over-hyped, and under-powered pile of steaming horse shit that is XML with every cell in my body.

And I dearly wish there was a YAML parser for C#.

Then there's me, who wrote in HTML 4.0 Strict before I converted it to XHTML Strict (which basically consisted of me changing the DOCTYPE tag and one other tag in the entire site).

It's clean, but you don't have to use it. I just happened to be using CSS as well, so seperating style from content worked alright in that case. (And I'm a bit of a masochist, apparently, in writing Strict when I didn't have to at all, on the first webpage I've written in a couple years.)
