Hi Thomas,

I was under the impression that xml was more structured so you could query
it easily using xPath or parse it using xerces or a similar utility.

Plus, how would you validate your text file? You could compare the xml with
the xsd and validate the xml source quickly.

Hi Pranav,
Well, I really dont' see any advantage in using xml over text files for 
storing game info. A flat database is basically nothing more than a text 
file with info separated by commas, and that is easy enough to implement 
if I wanted to.
