Introduction to XML Technology

Duration: 1 Day

Objectives

This course introduces XML technology, with plenty of hands-on exercises, and clearly explains the underlying purpose of XML as a means of separating content from styling. It includes the creation of content pages and shows how to transform them using XSL for delivery to the web page. By the end of the day delegates will have created a simple XML document, a DTD, a simple XML Schema and a CSS file to display XML in a web browser.

Pre-requisites

Delegates must have practical knowledge of HTML and be comfortable with building simple pages without the use of a WYSIWYG authoring tool such as Dreamweaver or FrontPage.
