XML will be the common language to descript resources,it collect element in tree structures.
Tree structure is the best method to catologue resources,i think.
With Xlink&Xpointer ,XML can organize trees to form a resource network, it's more like the true world.
I think using XML to manage resources (e.g. files or database) is a bright-future work.
