Suppose I now write, <Book:Book> <Book:Title>John Grisham</> <Book:Author>The Case of the Hidden Claw</> </Book:Book> How are you going to detect my error? You might be surprised at how common this is. If you want SGML-style minimization, <title/John Grisham/ is even terser. Better might be some way to map reliably from a custom format to an XML-equivalent, <data map="foo.map"> %T John Grishm %A John Clute %G Biography </data> DSDL (I think, or DSRL or DRSL?) is/was a language from ISO to do this sort of thing I think.
