XML - Frequently Asked Questions
Ok, a third one. I'll start an XML FAQ. One question per post. You're free to add a question and it's answer, but please don't post here unless you're providing a good answer to a frequent question. I'll keep an index in the first post in the thread, which I'll try to keep recent.
If you have input on the questions already in the FAQ or want to suggest a new question for someone to write an answer to, please post here.
- Where should XML be used?
