RE: XML and the Relational Model [long]

RE:  XML and the Relational Model [long]

Well, it is kind of a long thread. Here's one comment from it:

What I'm saying is that there is no "relational format", so to speak. There
are storage formats optimized for general relational operations, but that
doesn't mean that other storage formats cannot support them.

Alright. I'll send you a document I wrote off-list. Let me know if it
addresses the topic. It's too long to share here.
