    Question Should i use XML ?

    Hello:

    In the upcomming days i got to build a new web site and i want to know if should i use XML.

    I dont know if XML is enhaced enought today to put all the data of my site in these format.

    I see XML as a great time saver. I dont know too much about it, but i dream put all the text of the site in a XML document and then show it with diferents templates acording the user settings (plataform, browser, lenguage, print format, Flash, etc)

    Is that posible today ? Is still is complicated to think in XML for a Whole Web Site ?

    Thanx

    That depends on what kind of website your creating.

    If your creating a cross platform buisness website, or a website with large ammounts of dynamic content than XML is the way to go.

    dream put all the text of the site in a XML document and then show it with diferents templates acording the user settings (plataform, browser, lenguage, print format, Flash, etc)
    Recentely I worked on a site that uses your above method with .txt files. Developing a XML for just displaying text is a little overkill.
