[ Thanks to Steve Litt for this link. ]

"This issue of Troubleshooting Professional Magazine is organized as a tutorial. It's takes you through all aspects of beginning level XML, well into the intermediate level. I strongly recommend you go through this tutorial in the order it's written. That means going down this page through the "Learning from the Masters: How Dia Uses XML" article, then go down the "XML Java Coding Exercises" page, and then come back to this page and continue where you left off. Everywhere necessary, there are links to point you in the right direction."

"The coding exercises are all in Java. My research indicates Java has the most mature support for XML. Once you download Xerces from the Apache Foundation and install it, these exercises work on a Linux box with Java installed. Java is the most straightforward way I could offer coding exercises...."

"Rest assured, though, if you're a Perl, Python or C++ person, everything you learn in this tutorial will apply to XML in your language of choice. In every exercise, I used only calls defined in the DOM and SAX specifications. I used no "native Javaisms" to manipulate XML."
