RE: Why XML for Messaging?
Understood. Thanks for taking the time to answer. The real problem is 'myriad use cases' and 'one binary'. We'll do what we must. This isn't a surprise. Standards can't overcome physics. len From: Dare Obasanjo [mailto:dareo@m...] Microsoft's position has been consistent. We don't think there is a single binary standard that will satisfy the myriad use cases of XML* and more importantly we worry that a 'standardized' binary XML format by an organization like the W3C will lead to fragmentation of the interoperability story of XML. * We just announced that the next version of Office will use compressed XML as its primary file format. Although this works fine for Office, it would not work fine for other products at Microsoft. Similarly I doubt that Sun's fast infoset would be as satisfactory an option for storing office documents.
