Also featured will be Mike Bowers, principal database engineer for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.

Stirman and Bowers will provide helpful advice on the pros and cons of structuring XML documents in different XML formats such as XHTML, DITA, DOCBOOK, and custom schemas. Bowers will provide an in-depth discussion of the problems encountered and lessons learned from projects that use both a relational database and XML server at the LDS Church.
