Another thing to look at may be YAML:

http://www.yaml.org/start.html
http://www.yaml.org/
http://www.yaml.org/discuss.html

There are implementations in Python, Ruby, Perl, Java,
Javascript, etc.:

One thing that YAML has strived for, and largely got
for free through fortunate coincidence, was
compatibility with JSON.
