Re: [xml-dev] Features of XML Languages that Increase Complexity?

All of the features Roger describes are commonly available in XML tool

to some extent with the parser generator approach Roger asked about


Perhaps a good example of the minimalistic approach to dealing with (alleged) security issues in XML is MicroXML. To quote the latest MicroXML (draft) spec [1]:
"... the features of XML that are most problematic from a security perspective have been eliminated from MicroXML: most importantly, MicroXML completely eliminates document type declarations, including entity declarations..."
[1] Section #1, Paragraph #6,  https://dvcs.w3.org/hg/microxml/raw-file/tip/spec/microxml.html
