Simple XML

This simplified version on XML is a variant of the proposed XML language. It removes some features and adds a few others. It mainly differs from XML in these aspects:


A few examples of XML files:

  1. A document with all the information in the attributes.

  2. The current document in XML syntax.

I'm still working on a replacement for the DTD syntax, that would allow content models and attribute sets for elements to differ based on context. It would basically be an EBNF variant, with a few handy abbreviations for common constructs like start tags and end tags.
