XML Essentials

XML (Extensible Markup Language) is a a simple text-based language used primarily for representing structured information: documents, data, configuration, books, transactions, invoices, and management, display, and organization of data. It was derived from an older standard format called SGML (ISO 8879), in order to be more suitable for Web use.

XML is one of the most widely-used formats for sharing structured information today: between programs, between people, between computers and people, both locally and across networks. XML is very widely used today. It is the basis of a great many standards such as the Universal Business Language (UBL); of Universal Plug and Play (UPnP) used for home electronics; word processing formats such as ODF and OOXML; graphics formats such as SVG; it is used for communication with XMLRPC and Web Services, it is supported directly by computer programming languages and databases, from giant servers all the way down to mobile telephones.

This course discusses the basics of creating documents in XML. It also covers how to use Document Type Definitions (DTDs) to define the structure of the document, as well as its newer alternative, an XML schema.
