XML and traditionally-published data
... bringing meaning out of data

The problem

Much published material takes the form of large volumes of weakly-structured text. In such material, the meaning of particular sections of text (a word here, a phrase there) is difficult to capture - until now.

The solution

Early in 1996 the standards body responsible for HTML announced a project to develop a new markup language that would overcome many of the problems inherent in HTML. This became known as the eXtensible Markup Language (XML). XML is designed to capture the meaning contained within documents, rather than the fairly trivial issue of how to display them on-screen.

Most exponents of XML treat it as a glorified database language – a kind of universal transport system for moving small bits of data between various database systems. At J S Publications we understand how XML can deliver so much more.

XML for published material

By combining our Generic Data Resource approach with the power of XML to capture the semantics of a piece, we have developed the Generic XML Data Resource. This approach to managing large volumes of textual data - site reports, chapters in books, etc – means data once collected can be managed in a way that makes sense for the data, yet used and reused to need many, and disparate, information needs.

We are always happy to discuss you information challenges with you to explore how we may be able to help you.
