Re: [xml-dev] "Introducing MicroXML, Part 1: Explore the basicprinciples of MicroXML"

> I believe that one of the problems with XML 1.0 is the lack of support for the web, so this will eventually kill any child if it's not addressed.

XML has 'support for the web' in the form of XHTML, or any other
specific dialect.  There is nothing that needs to be added to XML in
general.  No one feeds their data bearing xml straight to the browser,
it always needs some processing before getting displayed.

The need for a simplified XML didn't come from the web, it came from
fellow developers struggling and getting annoyed with parsing XML
config files, or trying to write out some XML from a set of fields, or
trying to insert some nodes into some XML.

Nothing Peter, nothing.. to do with linking.  :)
