"Tutorial sessions at XTech 2000 are a great place to find out about the bleeding edge of XML development. To give you a taste of the current work on XML specifications and technologies, we attended two sessions: XLink and Apache: XML Publication Techniques."

"Link represents the cutting edge of W3C specification development, while Apache XML represents the cutting edge of XML web publishing tools. Both sessions demonstrated incredible potential for the future application of XML."

"Eve Maler, co-editor of the XLink spec, presented a tutorial on the XML linking technology, covering XLink and XPointer. She was able to report on changes and decisions made just last week by the W3C working group."

"An energetic Pierpaolo Fumagalli, a developer with the Apache Cocoon project, gave an interesting overview of the challenges that arise when developing web sites with XML. With two years' experience developing and documenting the Cocoon server (among other projects), Fumagalli has developed his own unique methods and techniques."

"Fumagalli shared some of the particular problems encountered with Cocoon 1. Cocoon is a server for parsing, transforming, and styling XML."
