Chapter 10. Databases > Accessing XML Data with Mozilla and Internet Explorer

Accessing XML Data with Mozilla and Internet Explorer

In the previous section I showed you how to embed an XML data island, and then access it using propriety techniques in Internet Explorer. In this section I’ll show you how to access the XML data with JavaScript. The techniques explained in this section will work in both Internet Explorer and Mozilla.

These are two completely different (but similar) techniques. IE includes built-in functionality, but if you want to use both Mozilla and Internet Explorer you have to write your own JavaScript to handle it all. Unfortunately, the cross-browser compatibility with Opera and Safari is disappointing. It seems most people shy away from it because you are currently limited to Internet Explorer and Mozilla.
