  • BadShah,

    I think the trouble with these new technologies is that they become woolly terms, meaning much more, and getting hyped beyond what they simply are.

    Don't despair if you are still confused after this....

    This is an XML document:-

    <?xml version="1.0" ?>



    line 1

    line 2




    So is this:-

    <?xml version="1.0" ?>

    hello
    hello, how are you?


    So simply, it looks likes HTML, but the rules are stricter (eg
    must be properly closed as
    ).

    So, for example, if HTML is written strictly as XML (called XHTML) then XML parsing tools [such as the XML DOM in MSXML.DLL] can be used on it.

    For example with the XHTML document:-

    <?xml version="1" ?>







    ASP could:-
    (1) load the document.
    (2) use the XML DOM to strip out the "insert_recordset" tag, and replace it with a database recordset in HTML format.
    (3) Send the new document to the browser.

    To save more confusion the following words are not part of XML, but were made up by me:-
    insert_recordset, use_table, message, the_subject, the_body

    Do try to get your head round it.
    I have found it enormously useful.
