Example text

The programmers who wrote Word decided to insert certain binary codes into the document to denote bold text, codes to denote page breaks, and other codes for all of the information that needs to go into a “doc’’ file. When you open a document in Word, it interprets those codes and displays the properly formatted text on-screen or prints it to the printer. The codes inserted into the document are meta data, or information about information. Examples could be “this word should be in bold,” “that sentence should be centered,” and so on.

For example, most word processors allow you to save documents in text form, but if you do, you can’t mark a section of text as bold or insert a binary picture file. You will simply get the words with none of the formatting. A Brief History of Markup We can see that there are advantages to binary file formats (easy to understand by a computer, compact, the ability to add meta data), as well as advantages to text files (universally interchangeable). Wouldn’t it be ideal if there were a format that combined the universality of text files with the efficiency and rich information storage capabilities of binary files?

Although the syntax for HTML and the syntax for XML look very similar, they are actually not the same—XML’s syntax is much more rigid than that of HTML. This means that an XML parser cannot necessarily read an HTML document. This is one of the reasons that XHTML was created—an XML version of HTML. XHTML is very similar to HTML, so HTML developers will have no problem working with XHTML, but the syntax used is more rigid and readable by XML parsers (since XHTML is XML). XHTML is discussed in Chapter 16.
