I have to support XML, Espen. I was working in retail, for Ace Hardware, when it first made an appearance. Back then we used EDI (Electronic Data Interchange) to transfer data between companies, and there was no standard at all. Every transaction had to be manually coded and decoded in order to do business with a supplier, and the costs were horrific. XML made possible the supply chain integration we take for granted today. Without it, we'd probably be paying twice to three times as much for every product we buy, simply because of the efficiency that XML has brought to the market. Unless you lived through that earlier time, you can't possibly imagine how tedious it was to order product to stock a store's shelves.

That being said, XML was created for that purpose, and it did a great job of filling that need. But today it seems to be used for everything imaginable, and often in entirely inappropriate ways. That needs to stop, but the value of XML for enabling retail data exchange is not lessened by the misuse of it in other fields.
Will Rogers never met me.
