TechBookReport on 'Imperfect XML'
TBR writes "XML should be a standard part of every developer's toolkit. The benefits of XML are well-known: platform independence, extensibilty, highly structured, supported by tools and libraries aplenty, readable by people as well as machinesâ¦ However, despite the huge amount of hype, XML is not a universal panacea able to solve every problem in IT. David Megginson, Mr SAX himself, has put together an interesting little book on some of the down-sides of XML, both technical and non-technical."
