    XML newbie

    Can anyone clear up a few things for me....

    Is it possible to make a cross-browser website using XML? If so what are the advantages or dis-advantages? If not, what is XML good for?

    Thanks and any other insight you have into XML would be great. Please speak slowly though.....

    hi,
    what are you looking at making cross browser compatible, is it css or javascript? the Only time you worry about cross browser compatibility with xml is when it is used with xslt to be transfromed into html using a browser, but this isn't used often and in this case it is xslt not xml doing anything cross browsery

    sorry if this sounds confusing
