The xmlization of plists has not been a good thing. If it's just meant to be an interoperability syntax, then it might not be such a bad thing. For sure writing a parser for the vanilla PList syntax is rather easy, but with the XML syntax you can skip that step and ease implementation (for something this simple the benefits are less clear of course). It sure is an ugly format, but computers don't know that much in the area of aesthetics. -- Robin Berjon <robin.berjon@e...> Research Engineer, Expway 7FC0 6F5F D864 EFB8 08CE 8E74 58E6 D5DB 4889 2488
