My understanding is that most developed pages are loaded on servers provided by
companies and organizations which does not allow their customers to create their
own scripts or programs to manage server sides. If your ISP provides you with
server-side features, you may use it, but if he/she does not, it is hard to ask
for specific services. The XML architecture provides users with complete control
from client side, avoiding dependencies on server providers.
