I recommend working through some of the exercises in Harold's free online book. A bit dated perhaps but a good foundation.

At a minimum you need to understand the uses of the various types of XML parser.

It all depends upon what are your requirements.

whether you are a grasshopper or wanted some kinda expertise on this XML Technology, you must need to understand the following topics:

XML basics ( including Well-formed XML, CDATA, PCDATA and other basic concepts ).
DTD
Namespaces
XML Schema
XPath
XSLT and Parsers ( including SAX and DOM )

Apart from the above topics, you may also need to understand the generation of XML from Java objects, if you are a java developer.


Regards,
Raghava.
