Linking Up - XML

You already know how to link XML documents together with XLink, and isolate specific nodes or node collections with XPath. Now uncover the third and final piece of the XML linking jigsaw - XPointer, an experimental technology from the W3C, which allows you to create XML links to specific points or ranges within an XML document.

And that's about it for the moment. As you can see, XPointer is a small but necessary bit of the XML Linking effort, and it will be interesting to see how it progresses over the next few months.

In the meanwhile, you might want to consider checking out the following links:

A list of XPointer requirements, at http://www.w3.org/TR/NOTE-xptr-req

The W3C's current XPointer specification, at http://www.w3.org/TR/1998/WD-xptr

The W3C's XPath specification, at http://www.w3.org/TR/xpath

Until next time....stay healthy!

Note: Examples are illustrative only, and are not meant for a production environment. YMMV!
