Well, it's hard to quantify exactly. My own sense is that XML has
penetrated pretty well so far, considering that it's been a standard for
only 3 years and still depends heavily on server-side technology for
portability. (I.e., client-side XML is still not readily portable,
because IE is the only client in wide use to support it fully.)
The other side of the coin is that XML's been an outstanding success in
the non-Web arena, when used for document/data interchange. It's just
that most of those developers are less visible than their Web peers. :)
