    If you've got lovely HTML, it probably means you're still writing it by hand, rather than getting a machine to spit out HTML that you know is conformant, cross-platform, optimised and free from bugs like XSS.

    So lemme get this straight:  HTML was designed to be human readable/writable, with a small performance tradeoff (vs. binary/JIT).  But we humans shouldn't write HTML, and good HTML shouldn't be very readable.

    Why are we still using this language?
