<p>The skeptic might wonder if 30 years' progress has really been that striking or why XML is greeted with such euphoria, especially because it doesn't even run on the CDC 6600. Maybe I could use my long-practiced skill with overlays to port J2ME (Java for personal digital assistants and other tiny machines) to the small memory of those titans of the past. However, this is daydreaming-let's get back to XML. Originally, this data structure specification was released with a rather clumsy method (called data-type definitions or DTDs) to specify the allowed elements, attributes, and other features of an XML instance. In Example 3, niters and couple are elements, and model is an attribute. Think of Grid Computing.</p>
