Samples are templates

DonXML writes on viral coding examples in presentations on using XML in .NET:

Joe Fawcett (fellow XML MVP) came across a great example (from the Microsoft.Public.Xml newsgroup) of one of my biggest pet peeves, "We (the community) are doing a very poor job teaching the average developer how to use XML properly in .Net".

I want to draw your attention to a line from the original post:

"So, is it possible to directly modify the xml file instead of using the dataset."

And the first response was:

"you can do it using Data Island"

Why does thing question bug me so much? Because we (the community) have done a very bad job using XML correctly in our articles and presentations.
Yeah, samples are in fact templates, a stuff to copy-n-paste. Keep that om mind while preparing samples for your presentation/article/blog.
