negative margins can cause floated elements to move outside of their parent elements. This seems to be in direct contradiction to the rules explained earlier, but it isn't. In the same way that elements can appear to be wider than their parents through negative margins, floated elements can appear to protrude out of their parents.

Let's consider once again a floated image which is floated to the left, and which has left and top margins of -15px . This image is placed inside a Copyright Page

Web servers typically have 3- or 4-part names; the last two parts comprisethe registered domain name, e.g., udel.edu.  Some webservers are configured as virtual hosts serving files under multipleserver names and domains.

The path and filename in a URL are typically specified from the rootof the web-server directory, which is some subdirectory of the server'slocal file system.  For security reasons, browsers can't access stuffoutside the web-server directory. 

URLs can specify files by  relative or absolute path. 
You can stop text wrapping by including a CLEAR attribute in a line-breaktag.  Move your mouse over the image and you'll see the text that'sspecified in the ALT attribute.The IMG tag's  LEFT and RIGHTALIGNattribute options wrap the text around the image.  The other ALIGNoptionsposition the image relative to the current line only, and do not wrap otherBy not predefining any tags in the XML Recommendation, the W3C allowed developers full control over customizing their data as they see fit. This makes XML very attractive to encoding data that already exists in legacy databases (by using database metadata, and other schema information). This extensibility of XML makes it such a great fit when trying to get different systems to work with each other.

XML supports shareable structure (using DTDs)

Since the structure of the XML document can be specified in DTDs they provide a simple way to make it easier to exchange XML documents that conform to a DTD. For example, if two software systems need to exchange information, then if both of the systems conform to one DTD, the two systems can process information from each other. DTDs are not as powerful as some kind of schema architecture for XML, they don't support typing, subclassing, or instantiation mechanisms that a schema architecture must have.

DTDs are a simple way to make sure that 2 or more XML documents are of the same "type". Its a very limited approach to making "typed" XML documents shareable across systems. In the future some kind of schema system will be proposed by the W3C that should allow typing, instantiation and inheritance of information (in XML).

XML enables interoperability
