That probably won't help you much as it's more of a reference
than a beginner's tutorial.

You'll find lots of material at http://xml.coverpages.org but if
you haven't used text markup before it might be useful to read
something explanatory and generic like the TEI's "Gentle Guide"
(http://etext.virginia.edu/bin/tei-tocs?div=DIV1&id=SG)
which explains why we do all this pointy bracket stuff, before
starting in on the technical details of XML.

You don't say what you do, so this is hard to answer.
