I can feel my wrists ache just reading it

Honestly though, having XML as the underlying construct instead of ASCII is missing the point a bit. What would be great is proper base support for Unicode in a programming language. Java tries, but comes up wanting - you can treat the String class as a UTF-16 codepoint API, but it's not exactly intuitive (or even documented, being something that only really got thrashed out during development of the nio.* libraries)

Otherwise, as far as XML programming languages are concerned - just say Lisp :)
