(1) It's butt-ugly, like all sgml derivatives.   Its extremely verbose
    tagging syntax puts the emphasis on the tags and not on the text.
    Indeed, it seems to be _worse_ than `traditional' sgml; at least the
    docbook source I've seen wraps _every_ paragraph in <para>...</para> --
    nice for the document processing program, not so nice for the document
