Aimed at Web developers, this text provides a quick introduction to XML, as well as expanded coverage on the latest (and still-growing) XML specifications. These are of prime interest to any developers who want to tap into the opportunities in B2B development. Simon St.Laurent explains the differences and similarities between SGML, HTML and XML, giving readers a solid understanding of how to create custom tags and Document Type Definitions (DTDs). He also discusses the impact of XML Schemas and RELAX. The book goes on to show the reader how to create a customisable online catalogue and manage online documents, as well as how to use XML in data-driven applications before walking users through creating custom vocabularies. In addition, the author also demonstrates how to integrate Cascading Style Sheets (CSS), the Document Object Model (DOM), Extensible Stylesheet Transformations (XSLT) and other emerging Web technologies with XML.
