> Why even use XML?
No. In "The Art of Programming" (highly recommended BTW.) they say that
whenever possible, use a textual representation of data because it's more
robust, and easily handled by both human and machine. I think this is a great
guideline, and XML can be used to represent structured data very easily.
As Tim says, it's like the new ASCII, but is also gives you a bit more depth.
