Xml tags and elements August 25, 2014

Posted by javafoo in Uncategorized.

Why do people get confused between tags and elements? When you are a developer, you are mostly talking about elements/nodes in the DOM tree or some type in the xsd. You should never be talking about tags. Even web developers don’t talk about tags, as most of it has been abstracted to some JS library. Unless you are handcrafting xml in notepad or something and are talking about missing a closing tag or something, I won’t judge you. But being a developer referring to elements as tags, now that is frown worthy.
