XML really is simple. It's when you try to use it that it gets hard.


From http://lists.xml.org/archives/xml-dev/200010/msg00116.html of October 2000.
XML on its own does, essentially, nothing. Let's add the approximately 90 pages of the XSLT Recommendation to express our XML as HTML or XHTML. Then we can add the 500 pages of the XSL-FO draft if we want the potential advantages of Web and paper output from the same source data. And if we want to illustrate our pages with Scalable Vector Graphics (SVG) images we can add another 492 pages of reading. But, let's not forget that SVG has dependencies on Cascading StyleSheets, CSS, has a variant Document Object Model, and is dependent on the SMIL Animation drafts for animation, which in turn has dependencies on the SMIL 1.0 Recommendation and the SMIL 2.0 Working Draft.
