Join Joe Marini for an in-depth discussion in this video Discovering document content, part of XML Essential Training.
…Alright, let's begin working with the DOM.…By seeing how we can use the DOM API's to discover information that's in a document.…So here in Aptana Studio, or whatever text tool you're using, open up…example snippets dot T-X-T and scroll down to the section on chapter five.…I'm also going to open up…DOMExample1_start.htm and you can see here that…I've got a pretty simple HTML file. Down here in the HTML content,…I've got an XML tag, which I'm using to embed XML content into the web page.…
Now, in real world usage, you probably won't see it used like this.…Typically, XML data will be the result of some web service call…or it'll come from a database or you retrieve it using AJAX and…then operate on it separately, but in the interest of keeping these examples simple…and self-contained, I'm just embedding the XML content right here into the web page.…Sometimes you might see this if the XML data is really simple.…Maybe more often than not you'll see it retrieved a different way.…
