    Hi,

    I am new to XML. Could some body please tell me how view the output of my XML file in the browser? Do I need to convert my XML file to HTML file first? How can I do that?

    I am using XMLSpy 3.5 to created the XML file.

    Please advise!

    Thanks
    KT

    kt...I believe you will need to find some program that "parses" the XML format. A script done in Perl or PHP could do the job.

    What is the purpose of your XML file? What are you trying to accomplish with it?

    ------XML scripts------
    Here is a link to scripts done in PHP:

    Here is a link to scripts done in ASP:

    Here is a link to a script done in Javascript:

    And lastly, here is a link to information about XML itself:

    Yes you need an XML parser. however, if you have the latest version of Netscape/Explorer, those browsers already have parsers integrated within.

    I saw an XML file that is used by SLashdot. It was rad how it worked in the browser (IE). It was just like a javascript tree.
