W3C Provides Concise, High Level Introduction to XML

In the course of reading all of the information on backend.userland.com, the content aggregator for My Userland, we discovered this concise introduction to XML published by the W3C. Read on if you are interested in why we chose to point to this, and how deep our present XML knowledge is.

It's not a particularly long story, it's just that it's only tangentially related to and somewhat less valuable than the W3C's XML Site....

Recently, CTDATA has been receiving feedback from users who are impressed with our content syndication capabilities that we implemented through RSS. RSS is an XML-based content syndication protocol. A lot of the follow up questions have been basic questions about XML and its uses.

We admit that we know very little of the fundimentals of XML. A lot of what you see us doing with RSS, XSL, and related technologies are more the result of following instructions that we've found on other companies' Web Sites to permit us to integrate our Site with theirs.

However, the more we get into high end Content Management System development, the greater the need is to actually understand XML. That's why we are doing what we can to bring information that we uncover about XML to our Web Site. After all, there is no better way to learn about a subject than to try to explain it to others.
