    Think i need to demonstrate how to diaplay data across platforms using a mix of html and XML.

    How do you embed XML into HTML?

    XML is mainly used as a "meta" language. It's not really for presentation like html is. It's used more for providing config values to other OO / SOAP code

    I also work in IT and a contractor I once worked with summed up XML perfectly. He described it as "CSV files on steroids", which is about right when you think about it.

    XML is straightforward to understand, but pushing and pulling it across interfaces, such as SOAP or with SQL Server, is quite complex I think.
