Sridhar,

The beauty of XML isn't just the separation of the content from the
presentation.  Middle tier technologies (CORBA/DCOM/etc.) have promised to
do that for quite some time.  I think it's also the structure that XML
provides and the complete vendor independence that makes it wonderful.  Like
HTTP, HTML, and the other technologies that have spread like wildfire over
the past 7-8 years, XML's final killer benefit is that it is ridiculously
simple yet very powerful.  I personally think that SOAP when combined with
XML is a killer app.
