        So is anyone working on or has worked on the
        glue programming glue that lets one suck data
        from the SQL database into the XML doc ??


        The answer is yes, but there is a lot more development going on
than simply querying tables and presenting the results as XML.

        1. You can get a sense of what people are doing with Internet
Explorer and ADO by following the Microsoft XML newsgroup

        2. If you are interested in server-side solutions, check out
Oracle, IBM DB2, Informix, Object Design (ODI), and Bluestone. The first
three are SQL products being extended to store and query XML
documents -- i.e., they provide mappings between relational data and XML
so you can do SQL queries across documents. Object Design has an XML
store based on OODBMS technology, and Bluestone has an XML server
(document server that integrates with SQL databases and ODI).
