Re: [xml-dev] Ten Years Later - XML 1.0 Fifth Edition?

Couldn't you also just do something like:

<dir name="my root dir">
  <dir name="my child dir">
    <dir name="deep dir"/>
  <file name="first file in dir"/>
  <file name="second file in dir"/>

I wrote a similar thing and this is the format I used (with some extra
attributes for more information about the files and dirs).

There are two kinds of people in the world: those who believe there
are two kinds of people and those who know better.
