CIF and XML integration

The open COMCIFS meeting in Geneva (13 August 2002, 12:30-14:30) will include a number of presentations exploring the relationship between CIF and XML. The following links provide information and background for those presentations.


Some useful web resources on XML in general.



Some generic STAR<->XML conversion tools have been built as part of the research on extending STAR applications at the University of Western Australia in Perth.

The following sets of files represent test files (a) in CIF or STAR format; (b) after translation to XML; (c) following inverse translation from XML to STAR format.

Note: Because the web server and browsers may attempt to render some of these files using inappropriate XML styles, it may be necessary to save them to disk (usually by right-clicking on a link in your browser) or to save this tar-format archive.
