Re: [xml-dev] Best options for converting JSON to XML

Seeing as I just want to shell out to XML for validation I'd like to
think I don't have to care about what the converted XML looks like.

Was reading another paper of yours
yesterday as it happens.

So heres my in-depth analysis.

Looks like the JSON people (or can I just blame Crockford) screwed up
by not thinking about interoperability with XML when designing their
format because now they have to erect their own edifice of supporting
tools and architectures. If alot of what they are trying to achieve
can be effected with compression and some transformation tricks you
got to wonder whether the price JSON makes you pay in the lack of
standards, interoperability and tool support/maturity is worth it
