This workshop is a fun hands-on introduction to the EXtensible Markup Language for technical communicators. You'll get to "dive under the hood" and work directly with XML code, leading to a better understanding of this well-accepted markup language. You will learn XML syntax, create well-formed XML documents, create Document Type Definitions (DTD), and transform XML documents to HTML. The experience you gain will help you better understand how to document, discuss, and work with XML when you encounter it in technical projects.
