The W3C -- my absolutely positively most favorite standards body ever -- has just come up with an XML namespace for emotions! I must say that I fully support this specification... who on earth would ever want to type something as confusing and ambiguous as this:
When we can do The Right Thing™ and use XML instead:
<emotionml xmlns="http://www.w3.org/2008/11/emotionml"> <emotion> <category set="everydayEmotions" name="Amusement" /> <intensity value="0.7" /> </emotion> </emotionml>
Ugh... If this were released on April 1st instead of November 20th, I would have been amused. But now I'm just plain sad. As Wearehug said, "It is becoming increasingly difficult to distinguish W3C specs from Onion articles."
