MicroXML is a simplification of XML that is compatible with earlier versions. Part 1 of this two-article series covers the basic principles of MicroXML. MicroXML is designed with a straightforward grammar that can be processed with many modern general-purpose parsing tools. James Clark, who led the original push for MicroXML, is among those thinkers who developed a parser for the community specification. Learn how to use Clark's JavaScript MicroXML parser to experiment with the format.

Editor's note: This two-article series, originally published in 2012, was revised to reflect subsequent important updates to the MicroXML specification.
