XML excercise

XML is a code highly reminiscent of CSS as both are used to style text and images that are placed within tags. Using this method for commercial design could be incredibly time saving, as all things that are tagged will automatically have a style attached to it. This would probably be most beneficial for direct mail campaigns and large scale layouts, catalogues for example.


Original document
This shows how you can individually map tags to styles. Alternatively, if the tags and styles share exactly the same name then you can choose map by name instead.

This image shows the mapped tags. When you highlight text you can see what tag and therefore what style that is linked to allowing quick and easy changes.
This shows the paragraph styles pallette. From here you can make changes to the style of the tagged (style name) text.

These are the final, adjusted documents, excuse the design.
