(last updated August 29, 2017)

One of the newest features in Office 2003 is expanded support for XML, or eXtensible Markup Language. According to some experts, XML will, in the future, affect virtually everything we do on our computer systems. XML support within Office may be a sign that such predictions are true.

What, exactly is XML? How does it work? What can be done with it in Office? If you want to know more about this important area, then you really should check out a free resource made available by Word MVP Bill Coan. Bill's area of expertise is office automation, and he writes well. I recommend the guide to anyone interested in XML and what it can do for you. You can download it here:
