      microformats is layered on top of XML. JSON could replace the XML
      layer. JSON is used to represent values (string, numbers, booleans,
      null) in sequences (aka arrays) and collections of name/value pairs
      (aka objects).

            It's quite a long way from ASN.1. ASN.1 is a data definition language
            (a schema language if you like).

            JSON is a data format.


            ASN.1 is like XML-Schema and JSON is like XML.

            JSON (JavaScript Object Notation) is a lightweight data-interchange
            format. ... These properties make JSON an ideal data-interchange
            language. ...
