Subject RE: XML Elements
Date Thu, 25 Jul 2002 20:17:35 GMT
Unless I misunderstand your question, this is a purely xml related question
and isn't likely to get answered here.  I'd reccomend reading a good
introduction to xml (e.g., http://www.xml.com/pub/a/98/10/guide0.html, see
also http://xml.apache.org/cocoon/link/xml.html for more xml related links).
Your questions seem based on a misconception that xml has a universally
defined set of elements like html does.  Element definitions are eXtensible
(the x in xml) by default and are defined by anyone.  While there are some
common standards floating out there, they are not in any way necessary for
beginning to work in xml.  Having said that, you will want to look for
information on DTD (Document Type Definition) and XML Schema, which are both
are standards for defining and automatically validating shared element
definitions.
