Chapter 14

XML and RSS

Introduction

 

The Extensible Markup Language (XML) was developed in 1996 by the World Wide Web Consortium’s (W3C’s) XML Working Group. XML is a widely supported open technology (i.e., nonproprietary technology) for describing data that has become the stan-dard format for data exchanged between applications over the Internet.

 

Web applications use XML extensively and web browsers provide many XML-related capabilities. Sections 14.2–14.7 introduce XML and XML-related technologies—XML namespaces for providing unique XML element and attribute names, and Document Type Definitions (DTDs) and XML Schemas for validating XML documents. These sec-tions support the use of XML in many subsequent chapters. Sections 14.8–14.9 present additional XML technologies and key JavaScript capabilities for loading and manipulating XML documents programmatically—this material is optional but is recommended if you plan to use XML in your own applications. Finally, Section 14.10 introduces RSS—an XML format used to syndicate simple website content—and shows how to format RSS elements using JavaScript and other technologies presented in this chapter.
