Re: [xml-dev] json v. xml

I use XML for data and docs. As far as I can see JSON makes my life 
easier for 10% (or less) of my needs at the cost of learning yet another 

There's a real advantage in a technology (XML) for all seasons.

There again I guess if all I did was program AJAX, JSON might be better. 
At the moment it's yet another language (YAL). And therefore it makes 
life in the world at large more, not less complex.
