Sample text

And like HTML tags, start tags begin with < while end tags begin with ; if the forward slash was omitted, the document would not be a well-formed XML document. In addition, to all elements being either closed or self-closing, the tags must always match up in order. This means that the XML document in Listing 2-5 is well formed but the XML document in Listing 2-6 is not well formed.

Variations on a Theme At first glance, the JavaScript in the previous example appears to be very similar to that shown in Listing 2-7; however, nothing could be further from the truth. The first of these differences is due to two calls being made to a web service and the use of XSLT to generate the HTML to be displayed in the browser. Let's look at this in a little more detail. First, the only thing that the initialize function does is call another function, doPOST, passing a TRue. org/getXML to get XML/XSLT from the web service.

Unfortunately, although the hand-crafted approach works for furniture and monsters, it relies heavily on the skill level of Igoreh, the developer. In future chapters, it is my intention to elaborate on the various techniques that were briefly touched upon in this chapter. Also, even though Ajax is currently considered a technique that takes longer to develop than the "traditional" methods of web development, I'll show some ideas on how to reduce this time. After all, what self-respecting mad scientist cobbles together each and every monster by hand?
