It is assumed that the reader is already familiar with the basic terminology of XML. If not, it is recommended that you read http://www.w3schools.com/xml/xml_syntax.asp to acquire a basic understanding of how to read and write XML.

LON-CAPA uses a very simple subset of XML and there is a lot you do not need to know, including but not limited to: CDATA, DTDs, namespaces, and stylesheets. If you search for XML resources on the Internet yourself, you do not need to read about those things to learn how LON-CAPA uses XML for problems.
