   RE: [xml-dev] XUL Compact Syntax Study Now Online - Is XML too ha rd for

[ Lists Home | Date Index | Thread Index ]

Not at all.  Ease and skill across a variety of languages 
in a single notation suffer multiple notations.  It is 
simply habituation.  Features aren't the issue at all.
It is hand to eye coordination.  There is no logical 
proof involved.  Just typing skill and mapping from 
one representation of features to another while reading 
or typing.

Syntax is not trivial.

So while we're at it, let's kill the SGML Declaration 
for XML and go with a curly syntax.  Should be really 
popular.  :-)

In developing the RELAX NG compact syntax, James Clark and the rest 
of the RELAX NG gang have proved this statement to be incorrect.
