Thinking XML: Review of RFC 3470: Guidelines for the Use of XML
Uche Ogbuji, IBM developerWorks

In this article the author surveys the IETF's take on XML best
practices. XML was designed specifically for use on the Internet ('the
Web' to be precise), and many Internet protocols use XML to represent
data and documents. XML has thus become important to all the major
standards organizations developing Internet technology, and not least
the Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF), an organization whose
technical papers drive most Internet protocols from e-mail to Web
communications, and beyond. In order to provide consistent quality of
XML used with such IETF technologies, the IETF developed a set of
guidelines, RFC 3470, entitled "Guidelines for the Use of Extensible
Markup Language (XML) within IETF Protocols." This article expands upon
the valuable advice provided in RFC 3470. Ogbuji: "Despite a few
quibbles, I think RFC 3470 is an excellent document."
