XML Matters: SVG and the scriptless script
Scalable Vector Graphics (SVG) browsers are becoming mainstream now, and they can be used in many powerful ways. Continuing on from David's earlier SVG column, Dethe looks at some of the ways that declarative markup can replace script for animation and other common scripting tasks. In the process, he briefly looks at replacing script with declarative markup in other XML dialects. Moving common scripting tasks into declarative markup can eliminate the need for tedious boilerplate code, reduce errors, and make your script's intent easier to follow, freeing you to focus on your code's unique aspects.

Create client-side diagrammatic interaction in Web applications with SVG
The maturity of SVG allows for a little-known style of use and development of currently undocumented visual elements. In a time when data-as-a-service is blossoming, it makes a lot of sense to script SVG instances from an enclosing Web application. A specific example of a dynamic choropleth illustrates how easy this technique can be.

Render dynamic graphs in SVG
Scalable Vector Graphics (SVG) is an XML-based language for drawing two-dimensional graphics. The ability to render graphics on the fly lends itself naturally to using it for representing data such as graphs. But suppose the data being represented varies in its magnitude. You may want to graph values between 0 and 10 today, and between 0 and 100,000 tomorrow. Plotting these values on the same scales would be useless -- ideally, you want the ability to scale SVG graphs depending on their content. Author Brian Venn shows you how.

Make the most of Xerces-C++, Part 2
This two-part article offers an introduction to the Xerces-C++ XML library. Here in Part 2, Rick Parrish demonstrates how to load, manipulate, or synthesize a Document Object Model (DOM) document, and how to recreate the bar graph in Part 1 using Scalable Vector Graphics (SVG). C++ programmers who read these articles should be able to easily add XML parsing and processing capabilities to their applications.

XML in Firefox 1.5, Part 1: Overview of XML features
The open source Firefox Web browser continues to grow in popularity. Users like the security and convenience features it offers. Developers like the Firefox attention to standards compliance, inherited from its Mozilla roots. The most recent version, Firefox 1.5, comes with many features for XML developers, including XML parsing, XHTML, CSS, XSLT, SVG, XML Events in JavaScript, and XForms. Additional third-party extensions provide even more XML support. In this article, Uche Ogbuji provides an overview of XML features in Firefox 1.5.

Create rich-layout publications in EPUB 3 with HTML5, CSS3, and MathML
EPUB 3.0, which is the latest revision of the industry-standard XML e-book format, jumps into modern web technology by embracing HTML5 and CSS3. It retains its focus on XML-driven toolkits by requiring XHTML serialization and adding supplementary XML vocabularies, such as MathML and SVG. EPUB 3 offers a variety of options for developing advanced, digital-native publications. In this article, learn to create rich-layout pages using some new features in EPUB 3.

Make the most of Xerces-C++, Part 1
This two-part article offers an introduction to the Xerces-C++ XML library. Part 1 explains how to link the library into applications written in Linux and Windows. Ample code demonstrates parsing with the SAX API, and a sample application shows you how to create a bar graph in ASCII art. In Part 2, I'll demonstrate how to load, manipulate, or synthesize a DOM document, and you'll see how to create the same bar graph using Scalable Vector Graphics (SVG). C++ programmers who read these articles should be able to easily add XML parsing and processing capabilities to their applications.

An early look at sXBL
SVG's XML Binding Language -- sXBL -- is an XML vocabulary being developed at the W3C as a means of mapping XML elements in arbitrary vocabularies to Scalable Vector Graphics (SVG) pictures that represent those elements. For example, an XML Metadata Interchange (XMI) document can be turned into SVG code that shows the actual Unified Modeling Language (UML) diagram encoded in the XMI document. But sXBL takes the separation of presentation from content one step further: It is a generic language for rendering documents as arbitrarily complex two-dimensional pictures. This article offers an overview of this emerging and potentially powerful technology.
