I will rephrase my questionWe are going to create a TV Guide XML LanguageSteps to complete are : Data to analyze: http://www.tvguide.com/Listings/ define the elements that would be needed to create these elementsPlace the data in a table

  1. The features that we want to work:
    1. Change Location/Provider
    2. Date/Time
    3. Search Listings
    4. Tabs
    5. Legend
    6. Table Display of Shows
    7. Shows Details
    8. Filter for HD

[*]The information table should look like this:

Element

Contains

Restrictions

  1. Your XML Language should consist of:

XML Sample Data DTD to define the sample data Either an XML XSLT or and XSL-FO CSS if you select XSLT

"We"? "Your XML language should..."? Is that a school assignment by any chance?Probably what they want you to do is use some language (whatever language is allowed: PHP, ASP.NET, etc.) to "screen scrap" this web page, and turn it into an XML document that contains said data. Read up on "DOM", and more specifically, the DOM as it appears in your language of choice.

it sounds like they want you to parse that site and manipulate the desired data in xml, and xslt to format the data in back to a html presentetion with help of CSS and DTD to validate your parsed xml. as boen already said the answer is DOM to manipulate the XML data. to get any further help you have to be specific which server side langauge you are using or planed to using. so that we can help you more efficiently..
