David --

XML is not difficult, but it isn't obvious, either. Many
HTML coders have become enthusiastic XML users. You will probably not
get past your frustration without either a class or a good book.
Fortunately, both are available.

For a quick immersion in many-things-XML I suggest IDEAlliance's
XML conferences. The next will be in Amsterdam, April 18-21, 2004
(http://www.xmleurope.com/), and the biggest (at least historically)
will be in the US in November (http://www.idealliance.org/).

Among my current favorite introductory books are:
  The XML Companion, by Neil Bradley
  XML Weekend Crash Course, by Kay Ethier
Not surprisingly, I like my company's "Introduction to XML" classes:

although there are quite a few others who teach good introductions to XML.

I hope this helps.

>Good Morning,
>I am very new this arena.  I work in the electricity industry and we are being required to utilize XML for downloading and uploading data.  We are even provided "code".  My question is this.  What in the world do I do with this code to get it to do anything?  I have Excel 2003 which supposedly utilizes XML, but right now I'm at a total loss?  Please help me?  Can a HTML coder quickly adapt to XML?
>Sincerely frustrated,
