  • XML is beautiful

    I remember when I first heard of xml and how it looks and how it's written. I remember the article I read talking about how xml can potentially be used and how web applications could be totally revolutionized. The code seemed so efficient and robust and right.

    Then I flaked out on learning more about it and now all I know is what it's called and kind of what it looks like

    I just installed vBulletin and I'm learning how to code my own style (via these very nice style docs / tutorial thingy). So, I'm reading about template conditionals and I noticed the <if> tag. How awesome is the <if> tag? It's so direct and clean. Plus it gives a cool, energy efficient little home for the <else /> tag! Woo!

    Ok, ok. Here are my questions: Is this xml? Is this tag defined by vBulletin or is it universal to any xml document?

    I know I need to educate myself on xml elsewhere if I want to get serious about it... Just thought I'd bring it up here first since I'm working with vBulletin.

      Its actually a pseudo code token that vBulletin uses to parse into PHP once the template is saved. Its never sent to or interpreted by the browser.

        Ahh, ok. Well it is awesome, is it not? So simple and elegant. Thanks for clearing that up.
