XML News from Friday, January 29, 2010

I've got a lot of the old data loaded into eXist (news and quotes; readings and other pages I still have to think about). I'm now focusing on how to get it back out again and put it in web pages. Once that's done, the remaining piece is setting up some system for putting new data in. It will probably be a fairly simple HTML form, but some sort of markdown support might be nice. Perhaps I can hack something together that will insert paragraphs if there are no existing paragraphs, and otherwise leave the markup alone. I'm also divided on the subject of whether to store the raw text, the XHTML converted text, or both. This will be even more critical when I add comment support.
