Without wishing to sound like a broken record, I think that SGML publications are the place to start. I personally believe that for better or for worse, an good grounding in SGML gives you a very different perspective of XML. The XML standard was purposefully kept brief, in keeping with the intended spirit of implementations. This is a sensible and realistic approach, though it may leave you feeling as though you're eating soup with a fork. :-) > So, is it acceptable to post here asking for clarifications on these matters? > I've read the spec, read the FAQ, I'm still somewhat lost on these things (but > learning!). It's difficult to say that this isn't the appropriate place, as even now there are legitimate (albeit infrequent) points raised about one aspect or another of XML, but if you strongly suspect that your question may be the result of your lack of understanding rather than a technical hitch, you would probably be better off either researching it further or taking it to comp.text.sgml. -- Regards Marcus Carr email: mrc@a... _______________________________________________________________ Allette Systems (Australia) email: info@a...
