Hi, guys...I received the following sentence in some content from a
developer. I've never seen this usage before, so before I rewrite or
question it, I want to know if anyone has ever seen this usage:

"Hydration/Dehydration of an XML structure from/to ASCII format"

I'm not addressing the use of the slashes or the from/to usage. What
I need to know is, is "hydration" and "dehydration" a phrasing that
those who know the secret handshake would find appropriate?

In this case, no water or moisture is involved with the subject, just BizTalk.
