Re: how we can parse an XML in HTML5

Hi! You must use javascript to parse the xml.


Here are a few links to get you started: 


//Perform when the document is ready/loaded/rendered
   //Asynchronously retrieve the xml file contents		
      type: "GET",				
      url: "sites.xml",				
      dataType: "xml",				
      success: function(xml) { //Upon successful retrieval
         //Iterate through the all the nodes/items
         $(xml).find('site').each(function(){ //For each item, perform the following						
            //Read each child node and associate the values with a variable
            var id = $(this).attr('id'); //Find an attribute within the "site" node/element						
            var title = $(this).find('title').text(); //Find the child element of "site" called title						
            var url = $(this).find('url').text(); //Find the child element of "site" called title						
            //Write out a custom link with the values above
            $('<div class="items" id="link_'+id+'"></div>').html('<a href="'+url+'">'+title+'</a>').appendTo('#page-wrap');
            //Establish the "desc" node/element as the this value below, to be referenced fro child nodes/elements
               var brief = $(this).find('brief').text();
               var long = $(this).find('long').text();
               $('<div class="brief"></div>').html(brief).appendTo('#link_'+id);
               $('<div class="long"></div>').html(long).appendTo('#link_'+id);



Good luck!:smileywink:
