The main difference is that in reading you can ignore some things, like most namespace declarations, which you can't ignore in writing. Beyond that you quickly run into problems like concise versus descriptive names or whether repeating element names in end tags is good or bad, where you can argue either way for reading and for writing. -- BjÃ¶rn HÃ¶hrmann Â· mailto:email@example.com Â· http://bjoern.hoehrmann.de Am Badedeich 7 Â· Telefon: +49(0)160/4415681 Â· http://www.bjoernsworld.de 25899 DagebÃ¼ll Â· PGP Pub.
