Not a Political Blog

</BLOG>This is not a political blog, but I thought this was a creative use of XML. The question is whether it's valid XML. I ran it thru all the XML validators and they all accepted it. Weird! I investigated the W3C XML specs and found an obscure section that confirms that the </BUSH> end tag is the only end tag that may be present w/out start tag. At first, I thought this didn't make any sense, but then I remembered that Bush is the only president elected w/out a plurality of the vote. XML reflects real life.
