MECKLERMEDIA'S INTERNET.COM UNVEILS THE XML FILES ON WEBDEVELOPER.COM
(WESTPORT, CT - May 12, 1998) -- Mecklermedia, The Internet Media Company's (Nasdaq: MECK) Internet.com network of Web sites, introduces The XML Files http://www.xmlfiles.com, featuring XML, the latest, cutting edge technology extending the power of the Web on WebDeveloper.com.
"XML (eXtensible Markup Language) allows Web pages to be designed in a custom language," said David Fiedler, editor-in-chief of Internet.com's WebDeveloper.com. "The implications are tremendous, especially for companies or designers who want their Web sites to have an advanced look without complex coding."
The centerpiece of The XML Files is a regular series by Internet veteran Nate Zelnick, the "Under Development" columnist of Internet World, Mecklermedia's news weekly publication. Zelnick's column will provide sample code that enables developers to create their own XML files. The XML Files also feature original articles from other Internet.com sites, ranging from tutorials in WDVL (Web Developer's Virtual Library) to Technical Director Scott Clark's hands-on guide to XML in WebDeveloper.com. Among the more advanced links in The XML Files are parsers, free software processors that can be used to create the most advanced XML designs.
XML beginners and veterans will want to add the URL http://www.xmlfiles.com to their browser bookmarks to keep up with all of the latest developments in this exciting new technology.
