in thread Human readable/writable serialization alternatives to YAML and XML ?

As for JSON being more readable, JSON is actually a subset of YAML - anything that is valid JSON is valid YAML as well (but not the other way around).

Just for the sake of correctness: JSON is not a 100% subset of YAML. The author of the JSON::XS module researched that topic: http://search.cpan.org/~mlehmann/JSON-XS-2.232/XS.pm#JSON_and_YAML
