Anyone seen the current issue of Scientific American? There's supposed to be an article in it that explains SGML, HTML, and XML in easy-to-understand terms.

Thanks for the pointer. Looks like the story you're talking about is at http://www.scientificamerican.com/1999/0599issue/0599bosak.html

Long time since the last activity here, but I just wanted to note I did finally buy the book and found it quite good. (Of course you already knew that!) And I paid special attention to the two regex chapters and learned some new things and got a lot clearer on some others. I'm going to the O'Reilly Perl & everything conference(s) next month (they have tracks also on Apache, Python, Tcl, Sendmail and "Open Source Business"), so when I get done with that maybe I finally will be able to call myself a Real Perl Programmer. And to think it all started one day in 1991 when I was doing some work at the Well office, and dhawk looked over his glasses with his feet up on the table as he was merrily scrolling along, and said, "yes, you can do that in awk but you really should be using Perl."
