Subject What tutorial? What example?
Date Thu, 24 Feb 2000 14:12:40 GMT
I am very interested in helping with developement on XML but I'm just starting about on understanding
it's functionality and I'm looking for a simple example to implement on my Apache server.
 Before you send me a reference to one please read the rest of this.

I have looked at hundreds of web pages that say they are XML tutorials and examples but only
about 2% we're actually something I would consider a tutorial.

I am looking for a small tutorial that I can install on my web server (Apache) and see the
results of it in an HTML page.  I realize there isn't XML support in Netscape yet but aren't
most XML examples parsing the output and using an XSL to format the output in HTML to the

I have just about every Perl XML mod installed, plus Apache, MySQL, and PHP.  The ultimate
 example I would like to find is something that I can pull XML data from a MySQL database
and use an XSL to format it for display in an HTML page, but I will settle for anything simple.
 I would even settle for a "Hello World" example.

I'll settle for anything simple that I can implement but I haven't really seen anything that
meets that criteria unless I'm running $4000 worth of Microsoft Server crap.  I think a lot
of sites have so called tutorials/explanations/examples/guides out there to pull traffic to
their sites but after reading the same definitions and seeing about a million "How To DTD/Schema/XSL/etc..."
I'm fed up with looking for something I can actually use.

If you know of a step-by-step example of implementing a simple example on an Apache server
please mail me the info or URL.  I will be eternally grateful.  As I begin to understand the
basics I hope I can begin to contribute to this group.  Thanks.
