You have been presented with some basic XML history, document structure, and suggestions for valid and well-formed XML. This chapter made no attempt to be comprehensive, and you have been provided references for further study. However, these basics are sufficient to help you with the XML usage in FileMaker Pro.
XML import and export with FileMaker Pro 6 is discussed in Chapter 2, and exporting and importing XML with XSL stylesheets is discussed in Chapter 8. You can read more about DTDs and FileMaker Pro XML schemas in Chapters 3 and 4. If you have successfully set up Web Companion for Instant or Custom Web Publishing with FileMaker Pro, you may wish to skip to section 5.2, "XML Request Commands for Web Companion." If you want to understand Web Companion a bit more and learn how to set it up for XML publishing, see section 5.1, "Setting Up Web Companion for XML Requests." You may also find "Security with Web Companion" in Chapter 5 helpful.
