Oh, I think that's an overstatement. Writing SGML parsers is hard.
Writing XML parsers is easy (almost trivial by comparison).

Even if implementing the full range of existing XML specifications
would be hard, the fact that it was possible to get off the ground
with something easy contributed to XML's success.
