As always, very interesting information Ken.

Suppose the year is 2027. XML stopped being used years earlier, in
favor of another format. The financial institution wants to examine its
data archives (XML documents) from 2007. What capabilities must the
financial institution have to read the archives?

I think the only capability that the financial institution will require
is the ability to interpret Unicode or ASCII, correct? Having an XML
parser will not be required, correct?
