XML ftw!1!!

XML for-the-win, is right!

Has anyone ever tried coding an XHTML page with XML/XSLT?
It's actually really fun! Or perhaps I am just really geeky! To begin, you need two pages: the .xml file and the .xsl file. The .xml page contains tagged/structured data and a reference to the XSL Transform. The .xsl is what contains the html layout coding and indications of which data from the .xml you want displayed. So technically, nothing on the .xml is shown directly from the .xml page - it is all taken into the .xsl and then displayed as a regular webpage. I am not sure whether it is the layout, the coding, the structuring, or the toying with instructions that excites me, but I had way to much fun getting my test page to work!

Organizing data with artistic design makes for just my kind of work.

Now I must research Iceland. Err, or I must listen to the sermon on I Samuel. Or, I should sit back and enjoy the last of my tea and Vast CD music. Mmmm why have I been so awake since 5:00pm? Is it the xml or the tasty gorditas I had from Taco Bell for lunch?

Oh, and the cookies from my church have been so tasty! Also, my American Braille slate & paper have arrived, but I have not had time the past 2 days to get them. I will have to do that tomorrow before I start on my yucky homework :p (Hollom is hiding from the non-xml homework.)

And on a random note, at the library today I was ordered to search for flight itineraries. Cool! I am now familiar with the codes for the various Washington airports and the associated airlines. I also submitted a travel expense statement. Finally, there were three students sleeping on the two couches and chair outside my office space from 9:00-12:00. I kinda felt bad for them, even though my supervisor tries to kick them out :p Especially the one sleeping all curled up on the chair. He was wearing pennyloafers and glasses, too! Aww...poor sleepy students...

It's been a super week!
