	ignored !?

Go to Balisage 2010 !

I'm planning an "impromptu" meet if possible on a similar topic, 
soliciting advise on how to create a XML to JSON reversible lossless 
translation that results is "good" markup on both sides.    I have some 
ideas but not a full solution and want to pick as many willing brains as 

Fact is, atleast from where I see things, the mobile/web/client side 
want JSON, but on the Server/content side we want XML.
I've gotten tired of trying to prove to the JSON folks that they are 
"wrong" and instead I've "stopped worrying and learned to love to bomb".
Now I'm trying to make it as painless as possible to provide the client 
side what they want without having push JSON upstream just because thats 
what the clients want, and let the server side use XML and XML 
technology they way *they* want.
