I'm a newbie in XML Conversion and we're being tasked to transform a
plain text file into XML. We've done this in SGML before and learned
also that XML is actually Web-enabled SGML. However, we noticed that
the extensive use of taggings (elements) in XML has slowed down our
Now my question is: is it really necessary to tag all items, say, in a
bibliographic reference, e.g.
XML Specs now:
<cite><title>The Origin of Species</title>, <author>Darwin</author>
<pages>pp. 6-10</pages> <pubinfo><pub>Oxford University Press</pub>,
SGML Specs before:
<cite>The origin of Species, Darwin, pp. 6-10, Oxford University
Links were provided to citerefs within the document.
What's the difference between the two, the rationale behind use of
extensive tags in XML, and when are decisions going to be made that
such data should or should not be tagged?
Thank you all for giving these some thoughts.
