Re: [xml-dev] Is an XML vocabulary a Domain Specific Language (DSL)?

I had always taken the term DSL to refer to a processing or programming 
language rather than purely a data representation language, but it seems 
from here:


that the term is being used more widely, and certainly the definition in 
that article is so woolly that any XML vocabulary can be regarded as a 
DSL if you find it useful to do so.
