HTML vs XML
Posted on 2007-10-08
Is comparing HTML with XML a fair comparizon? I don't think even we are allowed to do that!
I had an aurgument with our instructor yesterday about that XML is different than HTML and it does not make any sense to compare them. HTML is made to generate graphical output, and XML is more of a database that you may structure such as any database tool, except that it is a simple datafile!
He was against that i called it "more of a database" and said it is same as HTML but more advanced that could be used as a database but is not supposed to go under that category!
What do you experts think? And are there articles that i can show him to prove my opinion?
Thanks in advance,
