XML doesn't have a clear and easily understood relationship to JSON in the general case. I defined two mappings, one for round-tripping MicroXML through JSON and the other for round-tripping JSON through MicroXML, both lossless. But I repeat, there's no real reason to use MicroXML as an XML replacement, particularly not if you have a full XML stack anyway. -- By Elbereth and Luthien the Fair, you shall firstname.lastname@example.org have neither the Ring nor me! --Frodo http://www.ccil.org/~cowan
