30.2. How It Works

There are generally two files that are processed by an XML-compliant application to display XML content: the XML document and a style sheet (discussed in this section). In addition, some documents also use a Document Type Definition (DTD) that defines each tag allowed in the document along with its attributes and rules for use. The XML client can use the DTD to "decode" the markup and check it for accuracy. DTDs are discussed later in this chapter.

The software that interprets the information in XML documents is called a parser. Both Microsoft and Netscape have built XML parsers into the latest versions of their browsers (Internet Explorer 5.5 and higher and Netscape 6).
