least as heavy as the number that precedes it. Thus,100, 200,300, and 400 might all map tothe same relatively lightweight variant, while 500and 600 could correspond to the same heavier fontvariant, and 700, 800, and900 could all produce the same very heavy fontvariant. As long as no keyword corresponds to a variant that islighter than the variant assigned to the previous keyword, theneverything will be all right. For example, if you have an address book document stored in an XML file, created on a Mac, that you would like to share with someone who has a PC, you can simply email them the plain text address book XML document. This cant be done with binary encoded information which is totally platform (and program) dependent.

Another example is web enabling legacy systems. It is very feasible to create a Java web ennoblement application server that simply uses the services provided by the underlying legacy system. Instead of rewriting the legacy system, if the system can be made to communicate results and parameters through XML, the new and old system can work together without throwing away a company's investment in the legacy system.

XML is an open standard

By making the W3C the keeper of the XML standard, it ensures that no one vendor should be able to cause interoperability problems to occur between systems that use the open standard. This should be reassuring to most companies making an investment in this technology, by being vendor neutral, this solution proposes to keep even small companies out of reach of big companies choosing to change the standards on them. For example, if a big company chooses to change the platform at its whim, then most other companies relying on that platform suffer. By keeping all data in XML and using XML in communications protocols, companies can maximize the lifetime of their investment in their products and solutions.

XML is language independent

hand, is simply a slanted version of the normal, upright text. Font faces with labels like Italic, Cursive, and Kursiv are usually mapped to the italic keyword, while oblique can be assigned faces with labels such as Oblique, Slanted, and

Note that since horizontal margins do not collapse, the padding,borders, and margin of a parent element can affect its children. Thisis an indirect effect, of course, in that the margins (and so on) ofan element can induce an offset for child elements. Vertical marginsare still collapsed, as shown in Figure 8-18:

DIV {margin: 20px; padding: 20px;}P {margin: 10px; padding: 10px;}
P {margin: 5px; border-style: none; border-width: 20px;}

As we can see in Figure 7-41, despite the fact that the border's width was set to be 20px , when the style is set to none, not only does the border's style go away, so does its width! Why?

If you'll remember, the terminology used in the previous section was that a border with a style of none does not exist. Those words were picked carefully because they help
