<text:p>Dear Alex Brown. Please prove that I am invalid ODF 1.0 (ISO 26300:2006).
I do not think that I am. In fact I think that your statement that there are
no valid ISO ODF documents in the world, and that there cannot be, is a brash,
irresponsible and indefensible piece of bombast that you should retract.</text:p>

Meek young men grow up in libraries, believing it their duty to accept the views, which Cicero, which Locke, which Bacon, have given, forgetful that Cicero, Locke, and Bacon where only young men in libraries, when they wrote these books.
— Ralph Waldo Emerson, The American Scholar (1837)
