“XML is like violence – if it doesn’t solve your problems, you are not using enough of it.”

@debugninja it just tree based on those combined list/dictionary thingies?

JSON is similar except have to choose list/dictionary, and values can be typed as numbers/boolean.

But represent XML as [{keywords-value}, ....elements..] in json and imagine just prepending or using a type-node in XML to interpret the other way.

Feel almost that "Content-type:.." could be taken seriously, and interpreted as the tree.. Then maybe allow too...

No XML is like violence in that it can help you in the short time,but in the long time it will only fuck everything up

@pasqui023 I love that people will argue the effectiveness of violence but nobody argues against the ineffectiveness of xml :p
