Here is a scenario for all to peruse...

We are building a slide presentation application for Linux. I have
been suggesting that we use XML for the file format of saved
presentations. This has obvious benefits but it has one major drawback
in our case:

We are creating this app with a component system (Bonobo) which allows
the user to, for example, save a spreadsheet *within* their
presentation slide. So here we have another file format(not XML) that
needs to be embedded into an xml file. As far as my knowledge takes
me, XML is a bit too "flat" for this - or is it? How can this be
handled in such a way that we still end up with a valid XML document?
Can it?
