RE: [xml-dev] Feasibility of "do all application coding in the XML languages"?

Writing your application in a single language, if you can do it, will always
give you a substantial reduction in complexity versus using multiple

And writing in a language that is well adapted to the data it is required to
process will save you a lot of effort (human and machine effort) in doing
data conversion.

If all the inputs and outputs of the application are in XML, and if the
processing is within the capabilities of those languages, then why would you
want to do anything else?
