Efficient Interchange of XML: Ongoing work at the W3C

Liam Quin

Abstract

Some applications and user communities currently avoid XML because they perceive it to be too inefficient. They claim that it takes too long to generate and parse back into in-memory objects, or that the resulting XML is too verbose or takes too long to transmit.After a public W3C Workshop chaired by Liam Quin in September 2003, the W3C agreed to look into the isses around standardising a single format for efficient transfer of XML. Liam will give an update and describe the processes in place to try to ensure a careful and balanced decision.
