All You Need to Know about XML in One Page

20th February 2004

The world of XML is drowning in alphabet soup! There's just too much to know these days, what with CSS, the DOM, DTDs, HTML, HTTP, Resources, SAX, SOAP, URIs, URLs, URNs, WSDL, XHTML, XLink, XML, XML Namespaces, XML Schema, XPath, XPointer and XSLT.

Here, at last, is a one-page guide that tells you in the simplest terms what all these things are and how they fit together. Enjoy!

And that's all you need to know!

[Confession: when I print this with Mozilla 1.5 on Red Hat 9, using my browser-default font (12-pixel Sans Serif), it actually uses one and a third pages. But that would have made a terrible title.]
