Arbortext has launched an XML advisory site to be hosted by Eve Maler. The site provides free insights on XML, as well as a wealth of XML-related resources and links. Eve’s Advisory provides a forum for questions and is designed to give clear, concise answers. The debut issue of Eve’s Advisory, entitled, “Validation: It’s a Good Thing,” answers a reader’s question about whether XML will free him from the tyranny of rigid structure in document authoring. Readers can send their own questions to The site also provides links to resources, such as standards information, XML authoring tips, and calendars and agendas for upcoming educational events, end-user forums, and online product tutorials.
