Nicene Creed in XML

For a bit of geeky fun, practiced some xml coding basics by writing the Nicene Creed in xml. Well here you go:

<?xml version=”1.0″?>

<credo alt=”I Believe in”>

   <God max_num=1 min_num=1 persons=3 created=no>

        <person id=”Father”>

          <characteristic>almighty</characteristic>

          <substance>divine</substance>

          <created through=Son>

             <realm>”Heaven”</realm>

             <realm>”Earth”</realm>

             <realm>”Visible”</realm>

             <realm>”Invisible”</realm>

           </created>

       </person>

       <person id=”Son” num=1 created=no begotten=yes>

          <title>”Lord”</title>

          <title>”Jesus Christ”</title>

          <nature>True_God</nature>

          <nature>True_Man</nature>

          <substance same_as=Father>divine</substance>

          <Salvation History>

             <event by=Holy_Spirit through=Virgin_Mary>Incarnation</event>

         <event>”spoken through the prophets”</event>

      </person>

</credo>

<credo>

   <Church>

<confess>

   <Baptism num=1 for=”Forgiveness of Sins”></Baptism>

</confess>

<anticipate>

   <event>”resurrection of the dead”</event>

   <event>”life of the world to come”</event>

</anticipate>

<amen></amen>

Haven’t had this much useless geeky learning fun since using “The Hokey Pokey” as my example for my Microsoft Project class.
