Default data island

Hi everyone,

Anyone knows any comprehensive reference to this topic (embeded xml in html or so called data islands). All examples of using it in html tables are just reading the whole xml and put the text parts in table. In detail rules and syntax in order to utilize this technique is not clear anywhere on web. For instance how shall I read an attribute in my xml and put it in my table or is it possible to do any sort of if-then-else through table generation...

Best Regards,

Given that they are IE only there are some details here: http://msdn2.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms535918(VS.85).aspx
You can just use the data as if you'd loaded it into a DomDocument by treating the return value of getElementById("myXmlDataId") as if it were a loaded document, alternatively you can use the XMLDocument property. You can also access it as a recordset, see the URL above.
