Re: Re: YAML Ain't Markup Language


Re: Re:  YAML Ain't Markup Language
I agree with you, Simon- it's a good, pragmatic approach.  However, I wonder what happened to the old promise of XML a la Mr. Goldfarb- to remove the distinction between docs and data.
In many cases, it's not a viable vision, perhaps- and I never was very sure why I'd want to treat my data like a doc anyway.  Markup does give me the ability to extract data from my docs, which is probably more to the point.


To me, the name "YAML Ain't Markup Language" makes clear the separation
from markup approaches. That separation seems far more likely to make
both people who care about markup and people who don't happy than
continuing to force both groups into one set of specs, tools, and
practices.
