I had never really tried to do anything with XML. Looking at an XML file with no help is an intimidating prospect. I figured it was too complicated to bother with, and it's just for storing things right?
In my file structures class we've gotten to XML recently, and today I did my homework for that section. Holy cow is XML cool when you combine it with XSL. The ability to translate a plain XML doc into some nice, clean, formatted XHTML, or really pretty much anything you want is pretty cool. Now I understand.
