XML Choking Incident

12:14 p.m. instant messenger transcript taken from the IT department of WorkplaceUSA:

Zuber1101: We might have our own choking incident going on now. Look behind you

LockKnot4: nice

Zuber1101: Clem's trying to mask it but I think he’s having trouble If I get to do the Heimlich maneuver I want you to write the newsletter article

LockKnot4: < ?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"? >
                  < choke >
                  < /choke >
                  < eject > < /eject >
                  < /xml >

Zuber1101: Hey, I think that actually worked

LockKnot4: whew good

Zuber1101: Just what he needed

LockKnot4: well-formed safety training technique It’s all in the parser I can’t take the credit
