Anders Møller and Michael I. Schwartzbach of the BRICS research center have published a 130-slide tutorial on XML and some of its supporting W3C standards, as well as the Document Structure Description (DSD) schema language.

According to the annoucement, the tutorial covers:

  • XML, both a concrete and a conceptual description
  • Namespaces, about avoiding nameclashes in markup
  • XLink, generalizing the HTML link model
  • XPointer, for fine-grained addressing in documents
  • XPath, used extensively in both XPointer and XSLT
  • DSD, a simple but powerful schema language
  • XSLT, for making transformations of XML documents
  • XML-QL, query languages generalizing SQL to XML

The slides are also linked to a wide variety of additional resources on the Web, providing a quick reference to supporting tools and organizations as well as basic descriptive material.
