XML Basics - Part One
(Page 1 of 5 )

Surely XML has been (one of) the hype(s) for a while now, and I’m sure most of us have heard of it by now.  Every company, that wants to be taken seriously, has re-branded its products in such a way to at least suggest XML usage – a bit like the “Internet Enabled” hype a few years ago!  But why all this?

In this article we’re going to have a look at the whole XML phenomenon – the data exchange factor, well formed XML, validating and parsing an XML document, DOM, SAX and a few others acronyms that have started floating around since the “birth” of XML.
