In JSON they might look like:


In Mutant they might look like:


XML with attributes like:

    <Name attr1="v1" attr2="v2">Value</Name>

Would in Mutant be like:

    <Name attr1="v1" attr2="v2" :Value>

(i.e. attributes are placed between the name and the colon)

And XML markup like:

    <Name attr1="v1" attr2="v2">This is <b>Markedup</b> Text</Name>

Would be represented in Mutant like:

    <Name attr1="v1" attr2="v2":This is <b:Markedup> Text>

Or another example might be:

    <Name attr1="v1" :Read <a href="http://...":this> article>

You could even make arrays more efficient by saying that if a pair starts 
with <: (i.e. does not have a name field) it takes the name of the previous 
pair, like:


The benefit is that everybody gets to recognise something of their favoured 
technology in the resultant solution, and everybody feels equally
