If you are a technical writer or information designer and you have never worked with XML, you might be wondering why you should bother with XML. Using XML for authoring technical documents has a number of advantages for writers that can make it very worthwhile to consider.
1. XML is an international standard
XML is a document standard that is maintained by the W3C, an organization that is responsible for Web standards. XML documents are vendor-neutral, and they are not tied to one application or one company.
2. The name says it all: eXtensible
XML uses XML elements or tags to define document structure. By defining the document structure, you can then use outside processes such as style sheets to manipulate and reuse content. By separating content from display, you can use a single source of content and use it in many different contexts.
3. One size fits all users
Content re-use saves companies money and makes authors more efficient. XML supports and promotes these sorts of processes by being flexible and modular. You can create content, and then re-use that content in different documents.

Charts and graphs are super ways to make your point very effectively. You can gather data and prepare a chart to display your findings, identify opportunities as a result of what visually appears, and update the data to show changes or progress. Many software applications are available to help you prepare graphs in a jiffy. Check the Internet or your local computer to find out more about them.
Keep these tips in mind when you prepare charts and graphs:
- Write a descriptive title. Place the title above the chart or graph.
- Use an appropriate scale. For example, if your financial range is from $100,000 to $200,000, don’t show a scale of $100,000 to $500,000.
- Create a legend if the chart isn’t self-explanatory. Legends explain the symbols that appear in the chart.
- Keep the design simple. Eliminate any information your readers don’t need to know.
- Prepare a separate chart or graph for each point. If you try to squeeze too much information on one graph, you defeat your purpose of making it simple to read.
Remember: If a pixel is truly worth a thousand words, you can eliminate the thousand words with a well-done graphic. Make the graphic self-contained, tie it to the text, and
place it as close to the text as possible. Clearly label all the parts so the graphic is self-explanatory and sends a clear message.
