    One of the things that is especially useful about XML and related
    technologies is the facility with which data can be repurposed. You have
    one schema for marking up data, and stylesheets that transform it as needed
    for different publishing / usage contexts.

    Also, I don't see how it can be that a character sequence such as U+003C
    U+0061 U+003E can't be useful to you when some ridiculous character
    sequence like U+2604 U+0302 U+20E3 is.
