I'm new to XML and not sure it is the right tool for this project so I figured I would ask you guys... This is the deal, I want to make a CD-ROM with a searchable database that contains a bunch of articles. Not only do I want it completely usable on the CD-ROM but when I get a result from the search (say, one full article comes up) I want to be able to easily cut and copy it into an HTML editor. Is this possible with XML? If not, does anyone know what I could use to accomplish this? Thanks!
Lots of examples online too of grabbing XML docs.

Hm. As I see it, the catch is in balancing a number of XML docs against the size of those same docs...
As in, do you want to load one big XML doc that has everything, just to find one little snippet? Or do you want a bunch of little XML docs cross-referencing each other to kingdom-come?
XLink would be a very important technology to study for this. IE doesn't support it all that well, though.

Cool, I'll check out Xlink. And yeah, I have over 1000 articles that will each be their own document.
