We would like to offer our assistance. We at ITASCA have done many XML
Unfortunately, we need some more information. When you say XML do you mean
well formed or valid? In either case, how will you produce and maintain
content? Is you legacy data in XML? You may have to convert it. Do you do a

your visitors experience at your site? If yes, some forethought should go

Subject: XML Implementation
I would like to ask the community's help in preparing for a migration to XML
for our company's e-commerce website. The company's new business manager
has asked me to investigate: 1. "steps we must take to prepare for migration
to XML"; 2. "how far down the road is the markup language", and; 3.
"difficulties associated with changing our dynamic pages to comply with
XML." I understand that our on-line catalog is SQL scripted. Can anyone
with XML implementation experience help me address these issues? Again, my
level of knowledge is basic - I am not a developer. Thanks very much: John
