Applying XML Formatting

XML, or Extensible Markup Language, is an alternative to HTML. This format is ideal for producing extensive, highly-structured data from an application in a consistent manner. The difference between XML and HTML is subtle but profound: XML describes a Web document's content, while HTML tags describe how the document looks. HTML tags assign certain characteristics to the text they surround. XML is ideal for data-intensive Web environments and, unlike HTML, supports customized tags for specific data. XML tags, however, employ a much tighter rule system with regard to XML syntax. So much as a single missing tag or mis-formatted attributes makes the entire document unreadable.

Apply XML Formatting

Click the View menu, and then click Page.

Click the Code button at the bottom of the window.

Right-click anywhere on the page, and then click Apply XML Formatting Rules. FrontPage scans the XML code for missing or incomplete tags.
