JavaScript Object Notation

JavaScript Object Notation is a very simple idea—a standard way to represent XML documents as a JavaScript object. This could be useful when you’re trying to do client-side processing of complex XML-like datasets and want to avoid dependencies on a particular browser’s XML functionality. In a way, the JavaScript containing information about a game tree that’s downloaded to your browser from is the same idea, albeit specialized for SGF.

Next step: JSXSL to apply XSL transforms to these objects?
