XML Programming with VBScript

Course:  XMLVBS
Duration:  2 Days
Level:  I
Course Summary

XML data can be 'attached' to HTML documents when they are sent to the browser, thus, allowing VBScript to manipulate the data and present the user with a variety of different representations of their data without any additional server-side processing. In this course students learn the basic concepts of XML, attaching XML files to HTML files, and writing VBScript to parse and present the XML data in the browser.
