Chapter 10. Databases > Accessing XML Data in Internet Explorer for Windows

Accessing XML Data in Internet Explorer for Windows

XML data islands provide you with a (relatively) simple way to embed data in your Web page. Microsoft Internet Explorer 5.0 and above provide some nice functionality to bind that data directly into a table for display. Unfortunately these features are not cross-browser compatible and only work in Internet Explorer 5.0 and above. Still, XML data islands are a useful technology if Internet Explorer for Windows is your only concern.

Basically an XML data island is an embedded data store. Similar to a cascading style sheet that can be embedded in the page or linked to externally, an XML data island can be embedded into the page or linked to as an external source file. As you know, cascading style sheets contain information about how to present or format information. XML data islands can provide the actual information to be presented and formatted.
