  • Setting up an XML document
  • Validating with DTD
  • XML Schema:
  • elements & attributes
  • simple types & complex types
  • local & global elements / types
  • Namespaces
  • XPath: axis, node-test, predicate, functions
  • Transformation basics (XSLT):
  • transforming XML to flat text or HTML or XML
  • Working with XMLSpy

Intended for

Everybody who wants to use the various aspects of XML programming and/or to acquire detailed insight: web publishers, developers, document managers, IT strategy and IT project managers.
