I am wondering what the advantages and disadvantages of XML and database are for BE.  I think that the one advantage  that I can see of a database over XML for users/posts etc. is that a database is easier to read in a table format.  I would be interested in others opinions. Thank you.

Hello,

My I personally like xml vs other databases.  But, thats because:

1. I use Free Hosting which has very limited databases size.

2. I know xml better than sql.   I only have basic understanding of sql and lots more understanding of xml.
