RE: [xml-dev] Towards XML 2.0

You cant do that with JSON either becaues you have to escape Quotes and \\ 
Quotes are prety commonly used in 'plain text'


If it was just a string, you could construct the xml by concatenating
strings and then write it to disk, job done, no problems.

Currently you have to use a proper serialiser (because of namespaces,
encoding, escaping etc), and doing that requires a fair amount of
effort - you have to use (and learn) a library of some kind and write
lines and lines of code... all of which baffles and frustrates a
non-xml dev when all they want to do is create some simple xml.
