Re: [xml-dev] How to represent mixed content in JSON and JSON Schema?

Thanks for the suggestion.

Yes, there could be many different ways to extend JSON to support mixed content.
But I don't think just directly mixing JSON with XML is a good choice.

Mark tries to inherit or keep the simplicity of JSON as much as possible, both in syntax and data model.
1. In syntax, Mark uses '{ }' as the delimiters, which are already used by JSON, thus avoid another set of delimiters '< >', which just serve the same purpose.
2. Data model wise, each Mark object is still a simple JS object, just like JSON.
But it can cleanly represent both JSON and XML data, which I think is the beauty of Mark.
