Re: ConciseXML arguments

Re:  ConciseXML arguments
2.) Really?
 <key>I can be anything even <mixed-content />, amazing huh?</key>
 <value>So can I.</value>
Yes, really.  I was not saying that
it can't be done, I was saying that
key-value can't be done in a consistent
way.  Every XML document can choose a different
way to represent fields/properties/parts.
Having multiple ways leads to all
the problems around attributes vs. elements.
Below are just six XML 1.0 acceptable ways to
represent a key-value part.  The reason
there are so many is because there isn't
a single good way to do it!
<foo a_key="a_value"/>
<foo> <a_key>a_value</a_key> </foo>
 <field id="a_key">a_value</field>
 <field> a_key a_value </field>
 <fields> a_key=a_value </fields>
...and many other representations as well.
ConciseXML eliminates all the issues around
attributes vs. elements.
