XML Tutorial #5 : Ancestor and Descendant

In this part of tutorial i will define some words that may come in front of you many times during xml coding … those are

— Ancestor

— Descendant

— Parent

— Child

— Sibling

Before i make a description of those lets create a xml code …


    <grand_parents>

          <parents>

                <me></me>

                <my_brother></my_brother>

          </parents>

    </grand_parents>

 

well in this code … <grand_parents>,<parents> are ancestor cause they have descendants .. that means <grand_parents> contains two other element and <parents> also contains elements .. but <me> and <my_brother> are not ancestor cause they does not contain any element

Again ,, <parents> and <me> and <my_brother> are descendant cause they have a root/parents …

One think you may notice that <parents> is also a descendant and ancestor .. cause <parents> have child and parent ..

— Siblings are <me> and <my_brother>

— parent are child are too much easy to understand .. they are in regular meaning …
