Click for here 2018DHSI_ClassFiles sample files (this is a zip file. On a Mac, double clicking should be enough to extract the files. On a PC you may have to right click and select “extract” to unzip the files, as your computer will let you see the files, but won’t let you edit them until they have been extracted). We will be using software called Oxygen Text Editor to work with xml files (that said, there are other xml editors out there. After the course, feel free to take others for a spin after the class). If you haven’t yet, take some time at lunch to work through instructions for installing Oxygen on your computer (storing it in either your Programs or Applications directory), that Lee sent around by email. Let us know if you get jammed up. We are here to help.
