   RE: [xml-dev] Some Questions on XML and XML Processing

[ Lists Home | Date Index | Thread Index ]

Data dumps from relational databases for one, aka, CSV.
The usual problems with that approach don't need to be 
reiterated here.

VRML97 is a good example of a format that is not as 
verbose as XML but remains readable by humans.  But 
ease depends on familiarity with the content types.

The reverse question is pertinent:  when does a 
process/situation benefit from packing multiple 
documents into a single package and sending them 
over a network?


From: Stephen E. Beller [mailto:sbeller@nhds.com]

Following up on Ram's questions, if one was to cherry-pick, what kinds of
situations would benefit from:

1. A document that is not written in a tagged tree structure?

2. A less verbose (streamlined) way to structure content, which (a) is
easily read by humans and (b) comes in a single version that is optimized
for rapid processing/rendering? 

3. The ability to parse into multiple documents?
