The quote of the time interval, on XML

March 31, 2008

From an article by Henri Sivonen:

Draconian error handling creates an unstable equilibrium in Game Theory terms—it only lasts until one player breaks the rule. One non-Draconian XML5 implementation in a key client product and the Draconian XML ranks would break.

(Discovered through Mark Pilgrim, specifically his firehose.)

Applications to XHTML are left as an exercise for the reader.
