RE: XML and ConciseXML


RE:  XML and ConciseXML
The fact that you think you've expressed the same thing is the root of
your misconception.  From the XML document I can see that the document
was generated as a response to a method call, that methods may have one
or more params, that this method has returned only one, that this method
returned a double, and that this particular call resulted in a return of
the value 28657.

In your format, I get five meaningless symbols.

Even in your particularly silly example, I see reasons for preferring
XML.  Want to try again?
