Documents might be data, but the dichotomy is not just in our heads. XML
has a clear bias towards linear, prose-oriented verbiage. How else to
explain mixed content, the significance of order (as opposed to nesting),
and the lack of basic data typing? Fortunately, XML is proving itself to
be a good way to transport the kinds of data many of us think of when we
hear the word "data".
