XML to XML
I have a gnucash file that I'm trying to transform into an identical
XML file without the invoices.
I've been at this for a while now. The gnucash file is in XML and the
element I'm looking into is:
I want to ignore those that contain <slot:key>gncInvoice</slot:key>
which is a child of slot which is a child of slots which is a child of
Any help you're willing to provide would be greatly appreciated.
Classic application for XSLT. Start with the identity transformation,
then add a template which matches the ones you want to treat specially
and yields no output. From your description that would be
with the namespaces declared appropriately in the stylesheet.
(That looks like a somewhat unlikely markup design to me, but since I
haven't played with gnucash at all I'm taking your word for it.)

Actually, from the Relax-NG schema for gnucash, it looks like it should
be more like
with gnc:, trn:, and slot: all bound to the appropriate namespace URIs.
The fact that some of their elements -- eg <slot> -- aren't in any
namespace is probably left over from a pre-namespaces initial design, as
is their now-brok...XML or not XML?
I am developing a simple MySQL database editor, and am looking into
creating an PHP/AJAX app as the GUI. A lot of this in new ground, and
much more is dusting off things I haven't used in a while. My question
though involves whether or nor to employ XML. I did some XML a few
years back, but don't typically bother anymore. As I see it XML is
great when I need to have an app with a standard data presentation that
other developers can easily interface. I.E. like a bank statement that
may feed a variety of applications developed by a variety of clients.
However, if I am develo...To XML or not to XML?
Ok, it has been a while since I've needed to make an involved web page.
Coming back on the scene now is a bit confusing, what with all the cool
stuff to use like XML, PHP, MySQL, etc...
So here is my question. I'm in search of a good dynamic way to generate web
pages which separates content from presentation. I am seeking to create a
web site that, to put it succinctly, has a list of users and sets of
information corresponding to each user.
I am familiar with how to do this using PHP, MySQL, and regular old HTML. I
maintain the user database in MySQL and dynamically present it and the
information with PHP. This is very easy to do in terms of coding for it.
But I'm wondering? Is it time for me to switch to the XML with XSL method
instead? Everyone seems to be talking of XML as the end all be all. I've
looked into it, and on the surface, I just can't tell if it's worth it. I
don't really see the benefit. XML is just a "create your own HTML tags" and
then figure out wtf to do with them orgy. Great, so I can write
<dog>Spot</dog>. Whoop de do, that's useless to me unless I write a parser
for it to display it in a user friendly way. And I shouldn't have to write a
parser, there should be standardized ones for certain purposes. But wait,
isn't that what HTML already is? A bunch of <dog>Spot</dog> (figuratively
speaking) with the parsers having been written and mostly standardized
between companies ages ago...embedding xml in xml as non-xml :)
I have an application that logs in xml.
Assume <xmlLog></xmlLog>. In this element the app logs anything it gets
from foreign hosts. Now if the host sends xml data, the structure of the
document changes. ie. <xmlLog><somTag></somTag></xmlLog>. This will
cause problems with my log reader, because it assumes that <xmlLog/>
contains non-xml data.
My question is, is there a way to treat the data in the <xmlLog/>
element as non xml data. Something I can do that would treat anything
this element contains as a literal?
Any help or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

In my program, I get input from the user and insert it into an XHTML
document. Sometimes, this input will contain XHTML, but since I'm
inserting it as a text node, xml.dom.minidom escapes the angle brackets
('<' becomes '<', '>' becomes '>'). I want to be able to
override this behavior cleanly. I know I could pipe the input through
a SAX parser and create nodes to insert into the tree, but that seems
kind of messy. Is there a better way?

...Help on including one XML document within another XML document using XML Schemas
I would like to specify an XML schema that would allow an XML document
to be included within another XML document. The following example
schema gives an idea of what we're trying to achieve

<xs:element name="serviceResponse" type="ServiceResponse"/>
<xs:element name="anXMLDocument" type="xs:string"/>

The element anXMLDocument would contain an XML data string that would
be parsed against a different XML Schema. The identity of the XML
Schema for parsing anXMLDocument is not known at the time the
ServiceResponse XML is parsed.
Previously when we used DTDs we used inline CDATA wrappers around the
contained XML document to avoid it being parsed. Can we still continue
to use inline CDATA wrappers around the XML data when we parse against

What I remember, approximately:
The idea is that you have one XML file, in which the namespace is
defined in the standard way, using an URI. The URI, however, is pointing
to an online XML file. For example:
This dictionary.xml then contains, for example:
So a program wishing to convert the original XML to, say format2, would

We do not need to guess, try to reduce to the minimum necessary to show

XSLT processor you use.
Ok, false alarm.

I'm hoping I'll eventually be able to display each 'step' (node) on it's own
Web page, and show what link comes next. Is this a sensible thing to attempt
If so, how do I link to other nodes in the XML file? Should the <link> be to
another node's <id>? And will each node need a 'friendly' <name>, too?
(As you've probably gathered, this is all quite new to me...)
