> What are XML Infosets and what are they used for?
The XML Information Set  is defines the essential information that
can be retrieved from XML markup at syntax level. It's the common (now
formal) way for applications and humans to look at XML as a syntax and
what that syntax can denote.

I don't know about that, but it probably means that any information in
such a description is build upon the Infoset view of XML.

IMHO that is rather irrelevant. Most Information Items according to the
Infoset have to do with what the XML syntax represents. Such a
serialization, if full, would give you XML in another syntax. I'm not
sure whether this is the last or first thing we need these days...
Hope that helps,
