This book quickly introduces the XML standards (including schemas, XPath, and XML transforms), and the philosophy of XML. It then shows how the XML technology embedded into Office 2003 can be used to share and transform data in an enterprise. This book is aimed at experienced Office users that want to use XML to unlock the data in Office spreadsheets and documents. A secondary audience is IT professionals seeking to learn about XML and how it is implemented in Office 2003.
