Learn about the encoding scheme that is becoming the industry standard for the transmission of archival, museum and library data. XML is the foundation technology underlying Encoded Archival Description (EAD) and forthcoming versions of the MARC format.

RLG and MCN are offering this hands-on, full-day workshop for the very low price of $150.

Using numerous examples, demonstrations, and structured hands-on exercises, participants will acquire a thorough introduction to XML and be able to determine how XML techniques can be effectively employed in their work settings.

Highlights include:

* Six simple rules for creating valid XML documents
* Using cascading style sheets with XML documents
* Rendering XML documents programmatically using XSLT
* XHTML and HTML and how XHTML can make your website more accessible
* Using SPECTRUM markup to describe and repurpose museum content

This is one part of a full line-up of sessions and workshops investigating the functionality and implementation of metadata at MCN 2003: Balancing Technology and Transformation, November 4 - 8, Las Vegas, Nevada.  See the full schedule at
