Redesigned CTG Web Site Uses XML For More Intuitive Information Delivery

An integral part of our mission at CTG is to disseminate knowledge about IT use across government. Our primary vehicle for that dissemination is our Web site, and over the past year we have completely overhauled it using dynamic XML technology. The site enables users to search by project, publication, the themes of our work, as well as other topics that may be of interest to site visitors. We encourage you to visit the new site www.ctg.albany.edu, and let us know what you think by answering an eleven-question evaluation form available by clicking its link in the right column under "What's New."

After the initial investment in learning XML, there has been a dramatic and positive impact on overall site management and flexibility. If you are interested in this aspect of the conversion, please see http://www.ctg.albany.edu/publications/reports/xml

What is XML?

XML (eXtensible Markup Language) is a set of rules for designing documents that contain structural information such as chapters, headings, subheadings, fields, etc. It makes it easier to manage documents and produce Webpages, pdfs, and formats for print and other devices.
