Re: ConciseXML syntax and compatibility

Re:  ConciseXML syntax and compatibility
When I say that Word 6 "is-compatible-with" Word 5,
it often means that any Word 5 document can be read by
Word 6, and that Word 6 can write the in Word 5 format.

That doesn't mean that Word 6 *is* Word 5 when you
say that they are compatible.

ConciseXML is a new syntax.  It is *not* the XML 1.0
syntax, however, any XML 1.0 document is a valid
ConciseXML document.

According to the first definition of "compatibility" in
compatibility: capable of existing together in harmony

I believe ConciseXML fits that definition.
