A Simple Example Revisited

Example 2-2 shows how our “Hello, World” example looks after opening it in Word, selecting Save As . . . , and saving the file with a new name, HelloSaved.xml. For the sake of readability, we’ve added line breaks and indentation, neither of which affects the meaning of the file. The highlighted lines in this example correspond to the lines that were present in our original hand-edited WordprocessingML document in Example 2-1. Everything else is new.
