Summary How an XML document is going to be used has a big effect on how it is best structured. Deciding on a Naming Convention The second decision to make before progressing on to the really hard work is to decide what naming convention to use. You’ll remember from earlier in the chapter that there is no prescribed naming convention for XML markup languages, so it’s up to you what you use. You may even wish to adopt different naming conventions for the different types of names (element, attribute, and entity names, and enumerated values) that you use in your document.

Most XML parsers make the information held in the document available through a standard set of methods and properties. Most parsers support SAX, the Simple API for XML. SAX parsers generate events every time they come across a component in an XML document, such as a start tag or a comment.

DOM parsers hold the structure of the XML document in memory as a tree. ■Note You can find out more about the SAX and DOM APIs, and lots more, in XML in a Nutshell, Third Edition, by Elliotte Rusty Harold and W.
