"I'm absolutely thrilled to have learned InDesign. Michael really demystified the program, and I really enjoyed the way he presented the information to the group.

This class starts with the foundation necessary for understanding and working with XML documents. It then moves into the specific capabilities for working with XML using InDesign, including generating valid XML from InDesign and using XML as the source for your InDesign documents.
