Hi to all.

We sometimes encounter a client who belives that making XML(SGML)Documents
means making Database. What they believe is if they make their document in
XML they will easily be able to find information in it, and to manage it. 

We are having hard time to make them understand if they need data base,
they have to develop a data base system.
Then, they loose interest in XML(SGML). What they want is easy and versitle
data base system.

Do you have any good ideas to show the advantage of XML as the data base
format to this kind of people?
Are there any experienc or information regarding XML(SGML) data base?
Are there any good XML data base in commercial basis?
If there is such Database, how much will it cost? 

Thank you for your advice.
