Subject: Re: [docbook] Loss of faith -- somewhat rantish

I recommend a book: "Just XML"  written from a point of view similar to 
your own. 
Easy, quick read.  
It explains just enough about XML to enable you to get your work done.
It also explains why this knowledge is important to you, and will likely 
increase in importance
significantly over time.  Good luck.
