My knowledge of EDI is not very deep. EDI is mutch older than XML and
both can do the same things. If you have a look at an EDI-Document you
will see, that it es not so difficult to generate a valid XML-Document
from it. But you need a parser for EDI-Documents. And you must build the
protocol on your own. The oposite transformation from XML to EDI is
easier. The grammar of an EDI-Doc is similar to the structure of a
XML-Doc. But the details are a little bit tricky.
