Outraged? I'm barely surprised. This is a country where women aren't allowed to drive a car. They're not allowed to be in the company of any man other than a close relative. They're required to adhere to a dress code that would make a Maryknoll nun look like Malibu Barbie. They beheaded 121 people last year for robbery, rape, and drug trafficking. They have no free press, no elected government, no political parties. And the Royal Family allows the Religious Police to travel in groups of six carrying nightsticks and they freely and publicly beat women. But 'Brutus is an honorable man.' 17 schoolgirls were forced to burn alive because they weren't wearing the proper clothing. Am I outraged? No. . . . That is Saudi Arabia, our partners in peace.

My understanding is less then total myself, so trying to explain it is making me draw a blank...

in its most basic form, its a language like HTML, but designed to describe data rather then markup text. You can see an example here. That xml file shows the current slashdot headlines in XML form.

Now, I can take that and turn it into HTML using some scripting, however I'm having real problems figuring out how to make the code like not suck because of how whacked the MS XMLDOM object is.

The really neat thing about XML is that its Extensible, that being you can define your own tags. You can see what they have there, each story has information about it, and then the next story has that same info for itself, etc...
