Because I want it to be human readable - and yes, I have had to try and read parts of the termcap file more often than I'd like - and because I want them to be easier to use than a random syntax made up for the purpose, not harder. >And you know perfectly >well that the people who want these aren't trying to exchange termcaps, >they're trying to wrap binary gibberish in the trappings of XML >interoperability. I believe W3C confidentiality rules prevent me from confirming that :-) But I agree that the termcap example is not a very compelling one. It just happens to be a real one.
