    Should I use XML?

    I am creating a system that has a report feature. It basicly prints out a report taken from calculated data off a database. Now, is this a good use of XML?

    It could be. Depends on what you wish to use the data for.

    If the raw data could be handy for many different reports or for different uses, then yes, XML is a good idea.

    However, if you're just creating a single report, it may be easier to just format the data once for the report in question.
