About this courseSince emerging in the late 1990s, XML and it's many related standards have become a universal common language for structured data management and exchange between disparate systems. It is used as a simpler form of SGML in publishing and text handling, and as a semantic markup solution for data processing systems worldwide.
What you will learnThe course begins with a brief outline of the origins, advantages and disadvantages of XML, before a discussion of the semantic structure of the language.
