Why would you do that?

Go to www.w3schools.com in XML and tell me what do you think!! I´m confused!!! I don't want to show the site in other hardware aplications but I want to enter in the future and I want the information can be acessed for everyone in other reading machines" (agents). Do you think you can help me???

No, it would be a disadvantage. Databases are optimized for handling data while XML... XML can be used for anything which makes it inefficient in everything.

Do you really think DB with XML is unnecessary??

A relational database is a good choice to storing XML??
what are you actually wanting to do?
comparing completely different things, or answering really vague questions is a waste of time.
