( #3333=superdoc: print w/ replies, xml ) Need Help??

I shan’t say much here, because personally I don’t understand the point in using XML for plain ole tabular data either. I do see where XML is great when your data is deeply structured, and you’re dealing with arbitrary element trees. Then XML is great. But for tabular data? Storage in a ralational database and transport via CSV with column headers fill my needs quite nicely. All else is just buzzword hype, I feel. “Ooooh look ma’, XML!!”

Makeshifts last the longest.
