Why XML InfoSet specification distinct

Why is XML InfoSet specification distinct from the Xml DOM? Explain what does the InfoSet attempt to resolve?




The XML Information Set (or Infoset) states a data model for XML. The Infoset explains the abstract representation of the XML Document. Infoset is generalized representation of the XML Document that is primarily meant to act as the set of definitions utilized by XML technologies to formally explain what parts of the XML document they operate on.

The DOM (Document Object Model) is one of the technologies for representing XML Document in memory and to programmatically read, modify and manipulate the xml document.

Infoset aids stating generalized standards on how to employ XML which is not dependent or tied to a specific XML specification or API. The Infoset tells us what part of XML Document must be considered as the important information.
