You've probably already heard about XML, Extensible Markup Language - it's been the subject of many water-cooler conversations over the past three years. If you're a developer, you may even have tried your hand at creating an XML document, complete with user-defined tags and markup, and you've probably also tried using a single marked-up XML data source to generate documents in HTML, WML or other formats.
Over the next few pages, I'm going to bring XML into the ASP.NET world, with an explanation of how you can use ASP.NET code to read your XML data and convert it into browser-readable HTML. I'll also spend some time explaining the DOM technique used to parse XML data, together with illustrations of how the .NET implementation of this works.
I'll try and keep it simple - I'm going to use very simple XML sources, so you don't have to worry about namespaces, DTDs and PIs - although I will assume that you know the basic rules of XML markup, and of ASP.NET scripting.
Let's get started!
