RE: Joined today: Newbie questions
In general, the xml-l list is better for basic XML issues; xml-dev concentrates on more advanced and theoretical stuff. See http://www.oasis-open.org/cover/lists.html#XML-L for more on xml-l. See also the XML FAQ at http://www.ucc.ie/xml/ and good introductions for newcomers at http://www.xmlinfo.com/newcomers/. >1. Does Netscape and IE support XML automatically? IE5 does, Netscape 4 doesn't. XML support is part of Mozilla, the version of Netscape under development. >2. What plug-ins do I need (if any) for Netscape and IE for building >simple applications? I don't know of any plugins that would make for a different answer in 1. above. >3. What does the XML Parser do? Does it translate XML code into HTML? It checks the well-formedness and optionally the validity of an XML document. Typically, it also reads the document's components into data structures or triggers function calls that let an application use those components. Conversion to HTML could be one such application. >4. Do I need XSL or CSS? What is their purpose? They are two stylesheet standards that let you specify the appearance of different elements in your document. >5. What other components do I need to get started - that is to build a >simple application? XML is used for a wide variety of applications, so there's no simple answer to this question.
