Appendix: XML examples

This appendix has XML records for exercises in Chapters 3 through 6. See Chapter 2 for an introduction to XML. Although you may never have to work directly in XML, you should be comfortable with interpreting an XML record, and understanding how the metadata is represented in XML. You may notice inconsistencies between records. All of these records are valid against the schemas, but individual institutions will need to create best practices for use within their institution.
