For newcomers to Visual Basic 2005, the enhanced language can seem daunting. But books such as Professional VB 2005 can help you learn the language and all the new features included in it. This title covers Visual Basic virtually from start to finish. It starts by looking at the .NET Framework and ends by looking at best practices for deploying .NET applications.
Chapter 12, Using XML in Visual Basic 2005, discusses the five XML-specific namespaces exposed in the .NET Framework -- System.XML, System.XML.Serialization, System.XML.Schema, System.XML.XPath and System.XML.XSL. From there, the authors cover the objects and classes within those namespaces and offer an overview of how XML is used in other Microsoft technologies, primarily SQL Server and ADO.NET
