in reply to is XML too hard?
XML too hard? It's just LISP, isn't it? Except with more typing.
XML: <REALLYLONGNAME><ANOTHERLONGNAME>foo</ANOTHERLONGNAME></REALLYLONG +NAME> Lisp: (REALLYLONGNAME (ANOTHERLONGNAME (foo)))
Programmers grokked LISP 50 years ago. If XML is too hard, it says more about the quality of the programmers than of XML.
