Welcome to the XML Schemas Web Site!

On this Web Site, we provide you with the numbered listings from each chapter as well as the URLs mentioned. Each link opens into a new window so you don't have to use your back button to navigate the information.

For the URLs, we list a description of what you'll find and the URLs. In addition, if a URL has been updated from what appears in the printed version of the book, we put "(updated)" after the URL. Note that we do not list URLs used in markup examples, in-text URLs that refer to the URLs used in markup examples, or namespace URLs.

For the listings, we provide you with the listing number and caption and a link to the file. Note that some of the listings may contain links to files or applets that don't "exist." These links are there soley to demonstrate the markup; in other words, these are contrived examples. In addition, some markup is generated specifically for a particular browser. That will be noted in the caption. Other listings contain incomplete markup, in which case, we save the file as a text file so you can view the markup. To view the source for the markup, choose View | Source in Internet Explorer or View | Page Source in Netscape.
