I think Rick is correct. Think of building small xml docs with a particular need in mind to get an idea of what structure is about. The infrastructure behind supporting a small xml doc is the same as for a large document (only with fewer of each of the parts that have to be defined in things like the DTD and the EDD). My first xml exploration involved data in a spreadsheet exported to tabbed text and then wrapped in xml tags. The problem then was to display the data elements in a document.
Craig ------------------------------------- Hi, I am going to offer a contrary opinion. I wouldn't start with DocBook, DITA, or any existing applications. I would create a simple, custom application to get my feet wet. I do this when I train clients, even if they are using DITA, etc. It helps them to digest the concepts with a small application; then they can figure out how to get around in larger applications.
