One strength of XML is that it can be understood just by looking at it. Behind that simple facade lies some features that require study and explanation.
This presentation will focus on the features and syntax of XML that can not be understood just by looking at sample XML. Some of the features discussed: name spaces, processing instructions, character encodings, schemas, DTDs, CDATA, and how to choose a parser.
After the syntax discussion, I will demonstrate some of the common tools used with XML: XSLT, XSL-FO, XMLSpy, FireFox, and others.
