   RE: [xml-dev] XML Newbie - how can I convert (easily) my XML files into

[ Lists Home | Date Index | Thread Index ]

I have delved into XSLT a little bit, I am certainly working on using it
in the future. One of my concerns is page load time, If I allow the
client to parse the XML files (the full ones are a little large) page
loads take forever. If I parse on the server (Side question: is
PHP/Sablotron a good way to go about that?) how much is that going to
tax my server? 

It seems like it would be a good idea to have the info in a DB then spit
out what I need from that, be it XML or whatever I may need, then
deliver that info to the client?

Thanks for the responses.

The right tool for this job is XSLT, but be prepared for a bit of a
learning curve. It's a very powerful language. It may not meet your
"(easily)" requirement for the immediate task; but if you're working
with XML you'll need it sooner or later.
