Why I like XML

In XML, or pseudo XML, you can see the matching brackets

<matching bracket> stuff
</matching >

whereas in simply parenthesized notations like JSON

{n1: {n2: n3: "do you have enough matching brackets?" }}}

?


You can usefully define semantics for mismatching constructs. XML also allows unquoted text, because of the very verbosity of its punctuation.
