The main objective of this project was to devise a tool/procedure to aid students at Virginia Tech in developing their electronic theses and dissertations (ETDs) in eXtensible Markup Language (XML) and to document properly all the work that was done at Virginia Tech in this regard. The project began by studying the other ETD-XML projects done earlier. Both the approaches (DTD and XSD) explored at Virginia Tech were studied and an attempt was made to improve the XSD approach using VBA (Visual Basic for Applications). The proposed approach was completely implemented and documented in a way that should be easy for the students to comprehend. This should help ease student efforts to prepare theses in XML.
