more to come. This article provides some background history, a road map into the documentation, and an overview of some of
the technical issues involved in the specification. A sidebar takes a quick look at some key features of XQuery's surface
syntax. Code samples demonstrate the difference between XQuery and XQueryX and show examples of the surface syntax.

- The Pros and Cons of XML
Ronald Schmelzer (NEW 07. August)
A lot has been written, said, and discussed about the Extensible Markup Language (XML). As a result, there is a lot of confusion

languages, documents, tools, and applications have not been able to do in myriad other ways?
