Just a note, for folks who ask questions such as these, trying to
determine if XML can solve their problem:
Take your question, replace all occurences of 'XML' with 'comma-separated
file', and see if you can answer it youself. Chances are, the answer
will be the same.
Can a comma-separated file allow someone to upload an image, specify
attributes, stuff it into a database and then search by attributes?
No, probably not by itself.
