There was a conscious decision to have two different "configuration" language: ZCML for *software* configuration, and ZConfig for *process* configuration. A sysop is not expected to have to edit ZCML, but she will definitely have to edit the ZConfig file. Since XML is not designed for routine editing/reading by humans (its "human-readability" is a debugging feature), ZConfig uses a more readable format. It's documented in the ZConfig CVS tree. > ZRS?
