I don't get that. Domain knowledge to parse?
It required the DTD by standard, but that was
often ignored. What SGML did not have was a
data model. Some claim XML doesn't either.
But SGML does not require a knowledge of the
meaning of the tags to parse. It required
a fat parser if it used a lot of features.
From: Mike Plusch [mailto:email@example.com]
SGML required domain knowledge (knowledge about
tag meaning) to be able to parse a document. This is
something that XML 1.0 fixed, and ConciseXML
shares that same property.
