XML basics

S.Y. Zoe Chao

Abstract:

The goal of this chapter is to give the reader a basic understanding of extensible Markup Language, or XML. This will help the reader’s ability to learn and use the metadata schemas in the following chapters. XML is a markup language used to store and exchange data behind the scenes, and is known for its simplicity and flexibility. It is an open standard and no special software is required to read or write an XML record. Even though you may never have to create XML records directly, you should be familiar with and able to read an XML record. Example XML records are provided in this chapter.
