ASP code, XML, SGML, perl and even Css can be confused as the same
language, the layman usualy see's the whole thing as Just another HTML
document, only we know that, that is just a facade, and the way that these
applications render, I would point out that you could try to implement any
drill-down cataloguing in asp, but it would never in a million years be as
good at the job as XML, even in it's early days as it is.

Eh, I don't know, but it sounds to me like arguing that "HTML code is
similar to Perl code". I grant you that you can use Perl to generate HTML
and process HTML, but I don't know if I'd say they're really similar.
