Basic Standards of Exporting to XML?
I'm just writing a small, data gathering application, and I want to export the output to XML. Is it perfectly find if the output just looks like this?
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="ISO-8859-1"?> <output> <data> foo </data> <data> foo2 </data> <data> foo3 </data> <data> foo4 </data> </output>
Or is there anything special I need to add, for applications like excel to recognize my XML?
Always include the XML declaration. It defines the XML version and the encoding. See http://www.w3schools.com/xml/xml_tree.asp
