The XML class from About.com is a free, 10-week class about the eXtensible Markup Language or XML. The lessons are sent weekly by email, but the class is self-paced. You may read and review any of the lessons at any time. You can also have them resent to you. The following articles are part of week 3.
Whether you're writing XML from scratch, or writing a document from a pre-defined specification there is a standard layout for XML.
In a nutshell, elements are the building blocks of markup languages. In XHTML, the tags are called elements.
This is a self-paced class. This means that if you need more time than a week to review the lessons, that is fine. And if you finish the lessons before the next week, you can request the next lesson.
