Sample text

Unfortunately, SGML is such a complicated language that it’s not well suited for data interchange over the web. And, although HTML has been incredibly successful, it’s limited in scope: it is only intended for displaying documents in a browser. The tags it makes available do not provide any information about the content they encompass, only instructions on how to display that content. This means that I could create an HTML document that displays information about a person, but that’s about all I could do with the document.

It doesn’t go both ways though, so an SGML document is not necessarily an XML document. It is important to realize, however, that XML is not really a “language” at all, but a standard for creating languages that meet the XML criteria (we’ll go into these rules for creating XML documents in Chapter 2). In other words, XML describes a syntax that you use to create your own languages. For example, suppose I have data about a name, and I want to be able to share that information with others as well as use that information in a computer program.

People can even pull the file up in a regular text editor and look at the raw XML, if they like, or open it in a viewer such as Internet Explorer. ” Since we have full control over the creation of our XML document, we can shape the data in any way we wish, so that it makes sense for our particular application. If we don’t need the flexibility of our example, we could decide to describe a person’s name in XML like this: John Fitzgerald Johansen Doe If we want to create data in a way that only one particular computer program will ever use, we can do so.
