Web developers will embrace XML when
the whole package.
Web developers do not object to XML as means
of formatting data, i.e., part (a) of the package.
Web developers do object to the verbose, arcane
validation languages (b) and the verbose, arcane XML
programming language (c). Specifically, Web developers
object to XML Schema and XSLT.
These kind of statements assume far more homogeneity than actually
exists. It's like saying "Programmers don't like Erlang".
Web developers range from content designers and content authors who
programmers who are more comfortable with Java and SQL than with
anything on the client, via developers whose primary expertise and
training is in creating web pages. Within each of these groups,
there are communities who like and dislike different technologies;
and within each of these, there are some who recognize that their
likes and dislikes are subjective and should not affect technology
choices, and others who fail to make this distinction. Also, of
course, the vast majority of web developers get little say when it
comes to selecting the technologies they are using.
There are plenty of examples where a technology that is generally
liked is used far less than one that is generally disliked - RNG/XSD
being a prime example. There are also many technologies (XSLT being
an obvious example) that some people love and others hate (with a
silent majority who just use it to do the job in hand, judging it by
its effectiveness rather than its aesthetics).
