Today I completed the XPath tutorial on the W3 schools. I can now do some basic xpath, including using xpath to search people, organisations, and places in the Myths on Maps Project and find their associated IDs. I also explored Oxygen XML and took 5 minutes to skim the manual so I had an idea of what sort of things the program can do. My next work session will be refining what I can do with XPath: searching particular books or sections of a document rather then the entire document. Side note: At some point it may be useful to explore XSLT but it may not be necessary for a project of the size I am working on.
