The past few years have seen a dramatic increase in the popularity and adoption of XML, the eXtensible Markup Language. This explosive growth is driven by its ability to provide a standardized, extensible means of including semantic information within documents describing semi-structured data. This makes it possible to address the shortcomings of existing markup languages such as HTML and support data exchange in e-business environments.

XML started as an obscure effort driven by a small group of dedicated SGML experts who were convinced that the world needed something more powerful than HTML. Although XML hasn’t yet taken the world by storm, in its quiet
way it is poised to revolutionize the Internet and usher in a new age of electronic commerce. Until recently, the non-technical Internet user has largely written off XML as being more of a programmers’ language than a technology that applies to us all. Nearly two years after XML’s inception, there is still no real mainstream software support in the form of editors and viewers. However, just as with HTML, as the technology becomes adopted, the tools will start to arrive.
Netscape and Microsoft have already given us a taste of what is to come. Sams Teach Yourself XML in 21 Days teaches you about XML and its related standards (the XSL style language, XLink and XPointer hyperlinking, XML Data, and XSchema, to name just a few), but it doesn’t stop there. As you follow the step-by-step explanations, you will also learn how to use XML. You will be introduced to a wide range of the available tools, from the newest to the tried and tested. By the time you finish this book, you’ll know enough about XML and its use within the available tools to use it immediately.

This hack lays the basic groundwork for XML: what it looks like and how it's put together. Example 1-1 shows a simple document (start.xml) that contains some of the most common XML structures: an XML declaration, a comment, elements, attributes, an empty element, and a character reference. start.xml is well-formed, meaning that it conforms to the syntax rules in the XML specification. XML documents must be well-formed.

The arrival of support for XML - the Extensible Markup Language - in browsers and authoring tools has followed a long period of intense hype. Major databases, authoring tools (including Microsoft's Office 2000), and browsers are committed to XML support. Many content creators and programmers for the Web and other media are left wondering, "What can XML and its associated standards really do for me?" Getting the most from XML requires being able to tag and transform XML documents so they can be processed by web browsers, databases, mobile phones, printers, XML processors, voice response systems, and LDAP directories, just to name a few targets.
In Learning XML, the author explains XML and its capabilities succinctly and professionally, with references to real-life projects and other cogent examples. Learning XML shows the purpose of XML markup itself, the CSS and XSL styling languages, and the XLink and XPointer specifications for creating rich link structures. The basic advantages of XML over HTML are that XML lets a web designer define tags that are meaningful for the particular documents or database output to be used, and that it enforces an unambiguous structure that supports error-checking. XML supports enhanced styling and linking standards (allowing, for instance, simultaneous linking to the same document in multiple languages) and a range of new applications. For writers producing XML documents, this book demystifies files and the process of creating them with the appropriate structure and format. Designers will learn what parts of XML are most helpful to their team and will get started on creating Document Type Definitions. For programmers, the book makes syntax and structures clear It also discusses the stylesheets needed for viewing documents in the next generation of browsers, databases, and other devices.

JBuilder provides several features and incorporates various tools to provide support for the Extensible Markup Language (XML). XML is a
platform-independent method of structuring information. Because XML separates the content of a document from the structure, it can be a useful means of exchanging data. For example, XML can be used to transfer data between databases and Java programs. Also, because content and structure are separate, stylesheets can be applied to display the same content in different formats, such as Portable Document Format (PDF), HTML for display in a Web browser, and so on.
