Could anyone please let me know of any good XML resources/tools that they consider useful?
I've just started looking at XHTML seriously, and thinking about getting my sites ready for it. I'm not thinking about actually taking advantage of XML yet..just getting ready to conform to the standards for now. Most of it doesn't sound so tough to do..just time consuming making sure it's all good. There is one thing that has me a little confused, though. On the non-empty tags needing to be closed..no problem in adding a </p> if there wasn't one, but is it suggested to add the new tags for line breaks and horizontal rules alongside the old ones? Will XHTML compliant browswers ignore the older ones or will they see them both?
Just use W3C's Tidy utility (there's a GUI one availabe as well), and it'll spit out your page in perfect XHTML valid form, really cool!
And yes, older browser shouldn't have too much trouble with it.
Well,thanks..I guess I'll start giving that a try little by little. I'm still a little confused about what older browsers will see where there are line breaks and things like that, though. I guess I'll find out.
As sickingly obvious at it sounds, http://www.XML.com seems pretty handy. I believe it's run by O'Reilly Publishing - looks useful to me.
Good luck! I've decided to focus on other things aside from XML for a bit. Let me know how things go.
