I'm currently thinking about redoing a site using XML to structure the content. I'd do this not because it makes a lot of sense (the site is a typical small company site, with pages devoted to products/services, contact info, background, etc.), but just to get started down the XML learning curve. Doing this might let me play with different display options, e.g., an alternate page for printing, wireless devices, etc.
I've got MS Visual Studio, which seems like a reasonable tool for this purpose. What I'm looking for is a site template or similar that provides a basic data structure and means of displaying it, i.e., something that I could upload and see functioning immediately (with the wrong content, design, etc.). I'm confident that starting with something like this, I can change and expand it into what I really need. What I'm really trying to avoid is the "blank screen" starting point and the inevitable false starts.
Does this idea even make sense? If so, does anyone have a suggested starting point?
