XML Alternatives

By Deane Barker on June 9, 2003

Lately, I’ve seen some XML backlash. XML started as a very simple markup language, but has progressively gotten more and more complicated. An entry over at Don Park’s blog got me to YAML (Yet Another Markup Language) which is an alternative to XML, and from there, I found many others.



  1. The YAML example is acceptable but would be better as:

    — !person firstname: Deane lastname: Barker children: – Alec – Gabrielle
