    Anyone recommend some good sites for learning XML (with practice examples/questions?)

    As the title, I have a module this semester on XML and most of it is (I presume) going to be self taught. I have 8 weeks to both learn XML and produce a site/page that has to undergo 4 transformations into XHTML, RSS and 2 others (most likely mobile phone and SVG ... or a picture slideshow, I dunno).

    Anyway, having never done XML before this is a bit of a bugger, so I'm trying to give myself a head start by trying to learn some now. Can anyone suggest some sites to learn from?

    Looking for XML, DTDs and XSLTs for definite. I'm already using w3schools which is excellent but wanting a bit of practice so I can actually see how it all comes together...

    Thanks in advance.

    (I have some e-books from the lecturer that I'm going to go through now whilst referencing w3c but appreciate any and all advice/assistance! This module is only a half mod for my degree, but I'm determined to put the effort in for this final semester to ensure I get a first)

    ill be honest with you - theres nothing better than a book

    go to the library and get yourself a few books - stuff like step by step or xml for learners or something like that

    youll pay alot more attention that way than on a site and you can pick out a few books

    i had an sql module and had to do a massive project on it - i used books with tinternet as reference.

    SQL was grand, had some decent practicals in uni for it etc, however this is more of a crash course (or it feels like it) and anything else I needed sourced it on the web.

    However at the moment I've got very little to go on (about to read these e-books now, so should be good) but I learn a lot more when going through examples and seeing how it actually functions - It's great reading about needing to use elements in XML etc, but I would like an attempt at it with a purpose and expected results

    Thanks anyway though :thumbsup:

    ill be honest my sql assignment - i didnt even bother going to one lecture or tutorial. i couldnt understand anything the tutor was on about and alot of people skipped that class and made formal complaints that they didnt understand sh*t.

    i took a crash course too - i installed sql, took a book, worked on the book, learnt the principles, then applied them to my assignment.

    in the books you will find examples and purposes. once you follow these examples and make notes for yourself, youll understand where and when to use it and how

    +1, brilliant advice that, OP dont u have lecture slides etc?



    Having only had 2 lectures thus far (the first being a pointless intro, and the second today being rushed through with little additional information other than what xml is and to use elements) I haven't had much to go on.

    As I said, about to look at the e-books and continue through the w3schools site.

    I actually think I've answered my own query with this:

    w3schools.com/XML…asp

    Handy It always helps to look around a bit I guess!

    Thanks anyway chaps.
