Interesting Language - Can be very useful, March 2, 2003
Reviewer:W. Brantley (Louisville, Kentucky USA) - See all my reviews
Seems easy to understand and implement. I like the fact that it's based on XML and I agree with the author's arguments about XML being overcomplicated due to the attributes/object confusion. His conciseXML model is a good idea even if you don't use the language. Of course the success of any new language is the creation of a large community of users.
