Newbie Question: How do I Layout XML for Desktop Publishing?
Ok. I know what XML is. I've read a ton of articles on what XML can do, why
it's so great, etc. But how do you actually output the data to something
useful. All I want is to be able to read the data in a normal layout. What
if I wanted to publish the XML data I have in book for instance.
Thanks for the help.
Re: Newbie Question: How do I Layout XML for Desktop Publishing?
You can use CSS or a transformation language such as XSLT or XSL-FO, or use
the SAX or DOM model to process nodes and output content via a scripting or
programming language. For transformations, the output format itself is
entirely up to you--most common examples show how to transform XML to HTML
or XHTM, but you can transform XML to plain text, to a different XML node
arrangement or schema, to PDF format--whatever you need.
Here are some starting points:
