XML Step by Step- P6:Extensible Markup Language, or XML, is currently the most promising language for storing and exchanging information on the World Wide Web. Although Hypertext Markup Language (HTML) is presently the most common language used to create Web pages, HTML has a limited capacity for storing information. In contrast, because XML allows you to create your own elements, attributes, and document structure, you can use it to describe virtually any kind of information from a simple recipe to a complex database | 74 XML Step by Step note You can use a namespace prefix to qualify the name of the element in which the namespace is declared even though the prefix is used before it s declared. In the example document if you declared the cd namespace within a TITLE element rather than within the COLLECTION element you could still apply that prefix to the element name cd TITLE xmlns cd http cds Violin Concerto in D cd TITLE As an alternative to creating a namespace prefix and using it to explicitly qualify individual names you can declare a default namespace within an element which will apply to the element in which it is declared if that element has no namespace prefix and to all elements with no prefix within the content of that element. Listing 3-5 shows the XML document from Listing 3-4 but with the book namespace http books declared as a default namespace so that it doesn t have to be explicitly applied to each of the book-related elements.
