RE: [xml-dev] Holographic XML

Links within a line between points make the line two dimensional. Links between lines make them three dimensional. 
In XML points or nodes are related to eachother making the XML two dimensional. It follows that relationships between instances make for three dimensional XML. Such might be found in a collection or database holding and relating several instances or by using XLink or in the case of XHTML, hyperlinks.

I'd disagree: a sequence of characters is a lower level representation
than XML; XML adds semantic and syntactic representation on top of
that and gives you much more than a "sequence of characters."
