Plain XML


W3C XML home page: W3C XML


A collection of critical thoughts on "plain" or "generic" XML, why it can be considered harmful etc.


Back when I saw Douglas Crockford speak on JSON at the Silicon Valley Code Camp on 2006-10-07, I realized that with HTML+microformats for document content (user authored data), and JSON for API data (machine generated data), where did that leave XML? Nowhere it seems. I asked Douglas Crockford after his session, and have been mentioning it informally to a few people since, partially to get critical feedback on my reasoning, and partially to pass on a general questioning of the XML religion. It seems that this meme has been propagating quite well. Tantek 16:46, 31 Jan 2007 (PST)
