"XML is an exciting technology now being realised in online
publishing, information serving and content management on the Web.
XML looks just like HTML - it is an embedded tag mark-up
language. It is not so much meant to replace HTML, but make HTML do
what it should: allow document generation and management to be
simplified and to seperate the tasks of writing, Web developing and
graphically formatting Web pages."
"This is achievable because of how broad the XML standard is.
Figure 1 shows a simple HTML document; Figure 2 shows how an XML
version of this document could look. I say 'could' because what
each of the tags translates to is also defined. This makes Web
document generation more logical. It also makes content sharing
simplier, because relevant information (such as in the example
above) can be extracted and used on other pages. This process of
translating XML into HTML is called XSL Transformations
"Browser side support of XML/XSLT is currently limited.
Technology on the server end, however is much more excited. It is
on the server side that XML is really useful."
