I have had a Dutch article on XML and Excel on my site for quite some time now, but never got round to translating the thing into English.
Well, yesterday I found a bit of time during a long train-ride, so here it is:
From the intro:
Microsoft Office 2003 Professional was the first Office version that took the XML standard seriously. The XML standard has been devised to ease the markup of data (especially on the web). A well known example of the use of XML are RSS feeds with which one can gather news from web pages. In reality, these so-called RSS-feeds are nothing less than XML files. This article introduces XML and shows some things that can be done with it (specifically in Excel).
