Hi Folks,

What do you mean by ‘beautiful XML’?

Perhaps you mean something analogous to this:

A question I’d asked senior scientists when in college: “What do you mean by ‘beautiful’?” Replies had varied, but a synopsis had crystallized: “Beautiful science enables us to explain a lot with a little.” Schrodinger’s equation, which describes how quantum systems evolve, fits on one line. [1]

Is beautiful XML that which says a lot with a little? If so, would you provide an example, please?

If that’s not what you mean by ‘beautiful XML,’ then what do you mean?
