Where to start?
I'm trying to understand XML. Stop laughing. The single question is, of course, "what do I need to do in my applications?" My apps being the type that create documents (productivity). I have found a glut of information about what XML is and isn't, but somehow I'm still unable to see how it makes sense in such applications. What I understand is: 1) I can offload some code. Pre-fab parsers/validators, XLink and XPointer solve some problems that I have already solved. If I switch to XML I don't have to maintain some code that enables this magic. Less code is better, but in reality it's a pretty small amount of code that doesn't take much effort to maintain. 2) Although XML is not a solution to interoperability problems, solutions will probably evolve in terms of XML. It might make sense to use an XML format to be prepared for future developments. Gambling. I have more questions than information at the moment. Is that the general case out there? Where does it make sense to start integrating XML? As a document storage format? For object exchanges (interchange formats)? Elsewhere? Just thought I'd ask, :) Lee xml-dev: A list for W3C XML Developers. To post, mailto:xml-dev@i...
