        Subject: JSON and the Merchant of Venice

Peter Robinson and Desmond Schmidt mention JSON as a possibly superior
alternative to XML.  I wonder if they would be willing to explain how
they would represent the act, scene, line, speech, and page structure of
the Merchant of Venice (to take Peter’s example) in JSON?
I am sure many readers of Humanist will join me in wishing to see a
concrete demonstration of JSON’s techniques for handling multiple
hierarchies and non-hierarchical data.
