For anyone interested in a quick basic tutorial on XML, Eric Lease Morgan's, Getting Started With XML workbook from his Infopeople workshop is available online and is geared specifically to librarians and library employees and is recommended.
Designed for librarians and library staff, this workshop introduces participants to the extensible markup language (XML) through numerous library examples, demonstrations, and structured hands-on exercises. Through this process you will be able to evaluate the uses of XML for making your library's data and information more accessible to people as well as computers. Examples include adding value to electronic texts, creating archival finding aids, and implementing standards compliant Web pages. By the end of the manual you will have acquired a thorough introduction to XML and be able to:
list the six rules governing the syntax of XML documents;
create your very own XML markup language;
write XML documents using a plain text editor and validate them using a Web browser;
apply page layout and typographical techniques to XML documents using cascading style sheets;
create simple XML documents using a number of standard XML vocabularies important to libraries such as XHTML, TEI, and EAD; and finally,
articulate why XML is important for libraries. It has been translated into French and is intended to be downloaded. See http://infomotions.com/musings/getting-started/
