comment What are the cons of using XML for GUI development?
@suslik It's not really different, it's just that anyone can do what they want with XML, including making an XML schema that has lots of options for styling, and a parser that has cool features like overriding styles. You can't do that with HTML, since it has a set schema.

@Carson63000 Are WPF and Silverlight desktop technologies? It's interesting that Windows 8 is using it since it seems to be a table/desktop blend.

comment Best approach for a database of long strings
@JamesAnderson They'll be a couple of paragraphs long on average. But there's going to be thousands of them in the near future, and I just don't think SQL in the way I've been using it (emails and names, i.e. small strings) is the best way to go. I might be wrong, I don't know.

comment Best approach for a database of long strings
I was referring to some clever way of storing them, maybe through some type of compression, not plaintext strings. I'm worried about essentially the size of the database here.

comment What's the difference between syntax and semantics?
I understand that I didn't mention any research effort, but when I was told that those two terms were different, I was given the dictionary definitions. That didn't help me understand anything.
