2.2. Transforming Hello World

Continuing the tradition of Hello World examples begun by Brian Kernighan and Dennis Ritchie in The C Programming Language (Prentice Hall, 1988), we'll transform a Hello World XML document.

2.2.1. Our Sample Document

First, we'll look at our sample document. This simple XML document, courtesy of the XML 1.0 specification, contains the famous friendly greeting to the world:

<?xml version="1.0"?>
  Hello, World!

What we'd like to do is transform this fascinating document into something we can view in an ordinary household browser.
