XML Club


  1. The first rule of XML Club is: you do not talk about XML Namespaces.
  2. The second rule of XML Club is: you DO NOT talk about XML Namespaces!
  3. Third rule of XML Club: if someone yells "XSLT!", goes limp, or taps out, the XML reformatting is over.
  4. Fourth rule: one default namespace per XML.
  5. Fifth rule: one XML Schema at a time, fellas.
  6. Sixth rule: the XMLs are bare knuckle. No GUI, no IDE, no auto-identation, no searchable keywords.
  7. Seventh rule: figuring out the ns-prefixes will go on as long as it have to.
  8. And the eighth and final rule: if this is your first time at XML Club, you have to figure out that XPATH!
