A bit more about these classes:

- XML Basics, October 9 - 11, 2012
  Intended for people who have an interest in textual documents, such
  as writers, editors, and programmers with HTML or typesetting
  experience, this class focuses on use of XML with text. By the end
  of the class, participants will have created a valid XML document,
  corrected well-formedness and validity errors, written a DTD, and
  will understand the differences between XML DTDs, the W3C XML Schema,
  and RELAX NG (although none of the schema languages are covered in depth).

- Introduction to Schematron, October 12, 2012
 Schematron is a tool for finding things out about XML documents. It is
 used to check things that may be valid but that are often incorrect and
 to report on the status of a document or document collection. Participants
 learn to use Schematron to identify both the presence and absence of data
 and patterns, and are introduced to some of the more complex things one
 can write with Schematron. In addition, participants learn enough XPath to
 get started with Schematron.

- XSLT/XPath Basics, October 22 - 24, 2012
  XSLT, the non-procedural language for transforming XML into other data
  and XPath, its companion specification for identifying parts of XML
  are widely used to convert XML data into other data formats, including:
  forms such as HTML, database load formats, and XML according to other DTDs.
  class teaches the principles and practice of XSLT/XPath. Centered around the
  abstract data model of XML, students learn to create and prioritize
  use expressions, patterns, and functions to select nodes and create output;
  and create elements, attributes, processing instructions, and comments in

- Introduction to XForms, November 8-9, 2012
  This course introduces XForms as a technology for building
  special-purpose XML editors with focused functionality and
  correspondingly simple user interfaces. XForms is built on the
  model / view / controller idiom, in which the 'model' is a set of
  XML documents, the 'view' is specified using XHTML and XForms
  widgets, and the 'controller' takes the form of declarative links
  between widgets and elements or attributes in the XML documents.

- XQuery for Documents, November 13-14, 2012
  This course introduces XQuery as a flexible language for working
  with natural-language documents (books, prose, verse, drama,
  correspondence, historical documents, articles, legislation, etc.)
  encoded in XML. The focus is on the application of XQuery to
  textual material with complex and variable structure, as opposed to
  the typically simpler, more regular structures of data-oriented
  XML.  The course will cover XPath location paths, atomic values,
  sequences of values, the XDM data model, FLWOR expressions,
  function declarations, regular expressions and string manipulation,
  collections, and the full-text extensions to XQuery.
