    XML code, by the way, is not singular. "An XML code" sounds as odd as "a C code" or "a Visual Basic code". You could say "an XML tag" but "XML code" refers to any quantity of code written in XML.

    1. XML stands for "Extensible Markup Language." (not "extended")
    2. We live in a world of PIN numbers, ATM machines and FTD delivery. I don't worry about it.
    3. In the U.S., "snippet" is somewhat quaint.

    If "XML markup" bothers people, they can always say "an example of XML" and be done with it.
