Introduction to XML
In this course, you will learn the fundamentals of XML for use with XML-enabled applications or general web use. This introduction to XML prepares you with a foundation in one of the key elements of web programming.
Upon completion of this course, you will be able to:
- Demonstrate knowledge of XML, SGML, and HTML.
- Find and fix syntax errors in XML elements and attributes.
- Create and declare a Document Type Definition (DTD) in an XML file.
- Build schemas, namespaces, restrictions, and data types in XML.
- Perform transformations using advanced XSL.
- Navigate an XML document with XPath.
- Develop a personal information manager using XML, XSL, DTD, and HTML.
From beginning to end, you will learn by doing your own XML-based projects and submitting them for instructor feedback. These projects, as well as the final project, will add to your portfolio and contribute to certificate completion. Besides a browser and Internet connection, all software is provided online by the O’Reilly School of Technology.
This course counts towards the Web Programming Certificate Series.
