XML technologies offer web developers and designers more flexibility than ever before. In Real-World XML, industry expert Joe Marini covers the best programming practices with XML, including the tools needed to build effective XML structures. He demonstrates the implementation of XML formats, how these formats work in real-world situations, and how they can facilitate project planning and development. Exercise files accompany the course.

XML Essential Training is a prerequisite for getting the most out of this course.

Topics include:
  • Understanding the Sitemap index format
  • Integrating XML and design
  • Using XML effectively in Firefox and Internet Explorer
  • Avoiding common design mistakes
  • Understanding and implementing DOM algorithms
  • Building an XML tag set
  • Using XML with RSS and Atom
  • Processing XML data with XSLT
Developer Web IT


With all the data we have to deal with as developers and designers, the world needs a way to transmit it, store it and describe it. Well, I have a 3-word solution for you: Extensible Markup Language. (Music playing.) Okay, I'll make it three letters: XML. I'm Joe Marini and this is Real-World XML. I have spent a better of my career working in the web and graphics industries developing applications like Dreamweaver, Expression and QuarkXPress. During this time, I have seen XML become more and more important for information exchange on the web.

Now in this title, I'll show you how XML is used in the real world from common formats like RSS and Atom to technologies for processing XML data like XSLT. I'll also show you how you can build your own XML tag set and review some XML design and developing techniques I have learned over the years. I will be showing you these tools and techniques with an eye to making them applicable to your development needs, so you can use what you have learned here in your work environment. Now let's get started with Real-World XML.

There are currently no FAQs about Real-World XML.
