The Future of XML

Slugbait Re:I don't understand... (273 comments)

Just to be clear, the first two of these things are (relatively) easy because the libraries that perform the functions are already written. Actually writing an XML parser is unnecessarily of tricky because it requires schema understanding (in <foo><bar/></foo>... is there a text element between foo and bar?). Writing a validator is tricky because validation is a hard problem.
