-> XML shall be compatible with SGML.

-> It shall be easy to write programs which process XML documents.

-> The number of optional features in XML is to be kept to the absolute minimum, ideally zero.

-> The XML design should be prepared quickly.

-> The design of XML shall be formal and concise.
