Re: Should XML ever be presented to 'users' (Was: Re: [xml-dev
Because, in that analogy, the passengers aren't paying for a engine room tour. They're paying for the cruise experience, not the behind the scene infrastructure necessary to make it happen. Arguably the same thing goes for many, if not all, situations where a 'user' might interact with a system that utilizes XML behind the scenes. The users aren't paying for the the thrill of seeing XML parsing in action, they're expecting an application of some sort to do it's job. That said, just because a system is 'designed' to operate without users seeing the raw data, it doesn't mean the system shouldn't be programmed to ward off problems users interaction might cause. Assume the data could suffer all manner user-inflicted problems. Never assume otherwise. For at some point someone will decide it's worth mucking around with the data. -Bill Kearney -----Original Message----- > From: Simon St.Laurent Why bury the good stuff in the engine room?
