Chapter 2. What Kind of Thing Am I Creating? > Building Informative Objects

Building Informative Objects

The biggest change for writers moving into the world of XML is that now you must think more rigorously about structure, creating little Lego bricks of content, destined to be assembled and reassembled in ways you cannot always anticipate. You are no longer making a single document; you are preparing objects that can be put together in many different structures, formats, and media. But what is an object?

Think of an object as a little creature that has only one purpose in life: to apply certain methods to a specified collection of data.

James Martin
