Chapter 4: XML, XPath, and XSLT

Overview

As the popularity of XML grew, web developers wanted to use the technology on both the server and client-side, but only the former initially offered XML functionality. Starting with Internet Explorer 5.0 and Mozilla 1.0, Microsoft and Mozilla began to support XML through JavaScript in their browsers. Recently, Apple and Opera added some XML support to their browsers, albeit not to the extent that Microsoft and Mozilla have. Browser makers continue to broaden the availability of XML support with new features, giving web developers powerful tools akin to those formerly found only on the server.

In this chapter, you will learn how to load and manipulate XML documents in an XML DOM object, use XPath to select XML nodes that meet certain criteria, and transform XML documents into HTML using XSLT.
