Q&A

Q1:Some XML tags include more than just a name—such as a name followed by an equals sign and something in quotes, as in <book edition="Paperback">. What are these?
A1: XML elements can be modified by one or more attributes, which take the form name="value" and provide additional information about that particular element.

In the example you provided, the attribute edition has the value Paperback, and it's an extra bit of information related to the publication data of a book.

XML is a complex language that's beyond the scope of this book to describe in detail. Because FrontPage can produce and consume XML on its own in the same manner that it works with HTML behind the scenes, you don't need to know much about XML to benefit from its use.

To learn more about the concepts embodied by XML and how you can make use of them, Sams Publishing offers Sams Teach Yourself XML in 10 Minutes, by Andrew Watt (ISBN 0-672-32471-7), and Sams Teach Yourself XML in 24 Hours, by Michael Morrison (ISBN 0-672-32213-7).
