Backward-compatible XML Solution
ConciseXML is an innovation on XML 1.0 that enables XML to better handle data and logic. The constraints of XML 1.0 have limited its use because of significant ambiguity and verbosity. ConciseXML removes those constraints and provides a backward-compatible solution.
