Out of the 50 email messages about
ConciseXML, almost all of the
have been of the
"but ConciseXML is not XML 1.0!".
Although this is a true
how about any comments on the two
key problems that ConciseXML fixes
are reoccuring issues across the
1. XML 1.0 is verbose and is not
for many applications that people
like to use it for.
People invent new
syntax all the time to avoid XML
For example, XPATH, XQuery,
encodings, CSV data,
2. There is not a single way in XML 1.0 to
represent data fields that have a key and value
where the key can be any type
and the value
can be any type.
