Documents might be data, but the dichotomy is not just in our heads.  XML 
has a clear bias towards linear, prose-oriented verbiage.  How else to 
explain mixed content, the significance of order (as opposed to nesting), 
and the lack of basic data typing?  Fortunately, XML is proving itself to 
be a good way to transport the kinds of data many of us think of when we 
hear the word "data".
