I am very green to XML but I am familiar with HTML and SQL. I am working on designing a small application that will use Oracle Text to index and search documents to help improve our department.
I am just running into a roadblock when it comes to a design perspective. I started writing out some documents in MSWord (.doc) format to eventually load into Oracle and index, but then I started thinking XML is much more structured and would probably be indexed more efficiently and with the included metadata search would be more powerful.
Am I correct in this assumption and is it worth it to pick XML over any other format for Oracle Text?
