Water: Jelly Competitor?. Water lang.org presents a commercial (yet free?) XML-based language not unlike Jelly, but then again, completely unlike Jelly. Waterô is a new all-purpose Web programming language that delivers both power and simplicity. A quick-ref sheet is available.... [bob mcwhirter]
What I really don't get about Water is - its not using XML syntax. So a Water script isn't XML parseable. So why bother using XML-like syntax at all?
Jelly is really just XML duct tape, allowing you to turn XML into scripts that do stuff. The reason its XML is to reuse parsers, validators, editors and related tools.
