…Okay.…We reached the point now where we can start working on our…first XML file, and I'm going to do that here in Aptana Studio.…Now again if you're not using Aptana Studio, that's fine.…Your, favorite text editor will work just fine.…So here in Aptana Studio I'm going to open up…the Exercise Files folder, and I'm going to open up chapter four.…And I'm going to open this file here called FirstXMLFile.xml.…And you can see that the contents of…the file are pretty much empty except for the XML declaration.…
So all we have here is an XML declaration.…And I'm going to open up the ExampleSnippets file.…And scroll down to chapter 4 and I'm going to copy and paste these lines right here.…Into the FirstXMLFile.xml document over here and I'm going to save it.…Alright, so let's take a look at the contents…of the file that we have, we have a root tag, which is called FirstTag…and that's here on line 3, down here on line 6 is the closing tag.…And inside the FirstTag element, I've got some text.…
This is our first XML file and I've got a comment.…
