Much has been written about how to process XML documents, including how to search them with XPath, transform them with XSLT, style them with CSS, and create them with DOM. But as XML becomes increasingly popular and begins to pervade your systems (whether you want it to or not), a larger problem arises: How do you manage collections of XML documents? When you've got thousands, tens of thousands, or even millions of XML documents to hunt through, how do you find what you're looking for? How do you organize, index, search, store, serve, cross-reference, update, and otherwise manage medium-to-large collections of XML data?

This column will attempt to provide useful answers to these questions.
