re-reading last lines of mine from yesterday (6.30 CEST) I want you to know that sometimes teacher—which is other part of my position—gains control over rest of Michael and I may have sounded a bit too much like a head teacher. If you have perceived it this way, sorry for that. With respect to subject itself I simply prefer a) machine-readability to human-readability (O.K., so why not bytecode ;-) and b)—generally spoken—more schematization makes it easier by my experience for a machine/program answering our, humans/humanists, questions. Maybe, I should have simply reserved my plea for my colleague who is willing but under pressure of time and much more experienced in Java than XML. So, inhaling, wating, exhaling, and anew attempt.
Have a nice day and if you like share your solution!
