The DOM tree: How to navigate the contents from HTML webpages and RSS feeds

HTML is the type of document used to build webpages and is a widely extended format although not many people is aware of its internal structure. This workshop focuses on that internal structure, and also on the potential of the Document Object Model (DOM) for navigating documents.
The DOM tree allows us to explore webpages and other XML documents using their internal structure. This workshop will have a practical part where we will present a number of examples on how to use the DOM tree.
