HI, thanks for the reply...well..not really for interest........xml looks easy than php/mysql.......for small database sort of work, i guess i can use xml......where i'lll list all the products and visitors can search for the product they need.......i might have lots of products but with less information.........so i was kinda hoping xml can do the job.........even thought i have no idea abt it yet.....just still learning as i have plenty of time .......and ofcourse not sure how convenient it is........what do you think?

thanks for all ur help.....
