Referring to specific information inside an XML
document is a little like finding a needle in a haystack. XPath and XPointer are two closely related languages that play a key role in XML
processing by allowing developers to find these needles and manipulate embedded information. By the time you've finished XPath and XPointer, you'll know how to construct a full XPointer (one that uses an XPath location path to address document content) and completely understand both the XPath and XPointer features it uses.
