Yes! It's been a good year. Credit in a blockbuster movie, a growing readership for Flutterby (Thanks, Cameron, I feel like I've gotten a boost from your references), and, now, Philip Greenspun, web god, has quoted me in his new book, Philip and Alex's Guide to Web Publishing in the Learn to Program HTML in 21 Minutes chapter:

It has been four years since I wrote my "Shame and War" paper. Has there been any progress since then? Yes and no. The Extensible Markup Language (XML) is being standardized by the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C). Described by Dan Lyke as "the subset of SGML that Microsoft's developers could understand", XML addresses the need for semantic markup but not the requirement that publishers agree on a common set of classes for semantic markup to be useful.
