Do we really need a new query language for XML?


Resource Desc:

XML [XML98] has been proposed as a successor of HTML conceived to ease the task of exchanging, manipulating and reusing data on the Internet (and in other frameworks). The main advantage of XML with respect to its predecessor is a clear separation between the ways in which data, structure (DTD) and layout (stylesheet) are encoded. At the same time, XML preserves and enhances the hypertextual linking mechanism [XLink98, XPointer98] that has been so successful for HTML. It is therefore presumable that we will very soon witness the emergence of XML repositories on the Web, i.e., large collections of Internet-available linked XML documents.
