Extensible Markup Language (XML) is a rapidly maturing technology with powerful real-world applications, particularly for the management, display, and transport of data. Together with its many related technologies, it has become the standard for data and document delivery on the Web.
This book teaches you all you need to know about XML - what it is, how it works, what technologies surround it, and how it can best be used in a variety of situations, from simple data transfer to using XML in your web pages.
