XML, the crash course
I keep coming back to XML and I don't know why. When I was young and still in elementary school, my mother explained to me that I bitched and balled about graduating from one grade to the next because I didn't want to learn the same subjects (math, english, etc.) all over again because I felt these subjects were covered last year. Well, when I learned HTML, I didn't want to move on and tacke CSS. Now that I am a little familiar with CSS, I don't want to cover XML. But I can't get out of my head what somebody told me about XML, "It's easier". That's bullshit, you know.

I just finished reading the 11-½ minute tutorial at http://www.geocities.com/SiliconValley/Peaks/5957/10minxml.html
and I'm planning to read this after lunch http://www.simonstl.com/articles/whyxml.htm
BTW, I'm finding all this neat-o beginner's guide reference sites at the geocities site.

I remember trying something simple in terms of a "test.xml" page, but then I discovered if I want graphics in my web page, it's no longer called xml but SGML. Oh, what a headache.
