   XML too hard for programmers?

[ Lists Home | Date Index | Thread Index ]

This isn't a new thread - sorry - but this time the claim comes from an
unusual source, that infamous XML-critic Tim Bray:


"XML is a bouncing thriving five-year-old now, and yet I've been feeling
unsatisfied with it, particularly in recent times. In particular in my
capacity as a programmer...."

It's a page or two of reading, most of which reminds me that markup and
programming are two different universes which both happen to involve
computers.  Definitely worth reading.

Also, Micah Dubinko's already put up one reply:
