RE: Should XML Professionals Be Programmers?

Hi there,


I’m a qualified information professional (~=librarian), working on an XML-heavy project in the publishing world.


I’ve been following XML-Dev and hoping to learn more about this question too: how do you define an “XML professional”?


Is anyone on the list qualified specifically in XML itself?


It seems to me like “something I should have learned at Library School”, but it’s one of those things that librarians tend to leave to the IT people.

It’s a general qualifications question:  do you expect an XML professional to:


  1. Be able to correctly interpret DTD/Schema?
  2. Write or modify a DTD/Schema
  3. Code and/or test and modify XSLT.
  4. Program at least to a level of proficiency to build simple productivity tools (for example, basic querying of XML in some form)
