off by miles. Sebastian and I go way back (though nothing to do with
marriage) but I thought it was obvious that I was telling him a lier for his
claim that I shout in private.
he is right though about one point: I'm very much interested in concepts and
algorithms for high quality typesetting and think that TeX is a good basis
to actually explore them. Strangely enough a lot of people still turn to it
(LaTeX) when it comes to formatting XML and other documents.
