Not being overly familiar with XML, it really seems some think it's the
cat's meow. LaTeX or TeX can produce very nice output in many formats
(with convertors) including PDF and HTML, whereas XML seems to need
LaTeX as an intermediary to produce customizable PDF output unless you
write either an XSLT stylesheet or an XML doctype. So what is better
about creating an XML template vs a TeX template?
