Aclug Meeting: Monday, March 05: XML

EXtensible Markup Language) An open standard for describing data from the
W3C. It is used for defining data elements on a Web page and
business-to-business documents. It uses a similar tag structure as HTML;
however, whereas HTML defines how elements are displayed, XML defines what
those elements contain. HTML uses predefined tags, but XML allows tags to
be defined by the developer of the page. Thus, virtually any data items,
such as product, sales rep and amount due, can be identified, allowing Web
pages to function like database records. By providing a common method for
identifying data, XML supports business-to-business transactions and is
expected to become the dominant format for electronic data interchange.

James Violette will be tonight's speaker.

About the Air Capital Linux Users Group

ACLUG was created in early 1998 as a group to help people discover
better ways to take advantage of modern computing through the use of
Linux.  All ACLUG events are free; we have hosted many free Linux
installation events, during which Linux was installed on dozens of
computers for no charge.  We would like to show the benefits of Unix
operating systems such as Linux to as many people as possible.  ACLUG
members range from people just starting out with computers and Linux
to those that have written parts of the Linux system or are doing
computer research under the Linux platform.

ACLUG would like to show you the benefits of Linux for home and
business use.  Feel free to attend one of our meetings or ask
questions about Linux at help@xxxxxxxxx.  You may also examine the
archives of previous discussions on our discussion lists at or join the list;
instructions for doing so are at
Announcements for upcoming ACLUG meetings and events will always be sent
first to the aclug-announce mailing lists.
