ASP-DEv XM Forums Publisher's description
ASP-DEv XM Forums is an XML based forum that generates XML rather than HTML pages.
This forum is XML based (messages are sill stored in the database), all of the ASP pages generate XML rather than HTML.
This makes the forum very fast as there are no response.write, no mixed HTML/ASP pages that are difficult to edit. The XML each page generates is only a fraction of the size that the page would be if it was HTML.
The other benefit of using XML is that the forum can be skinned, simply by using a different XSLT style sheet, also by using XML based language files, the forum can be multilingual.
