are there breast cancer cells
in your lymph nodes?
Your doctor will examine your lymph
nodes to see if they contain cancer.
Having cancer cells in the lymph nodes
under your arm is associated with an
increased risk of the cancer spreading.
Lymph nodes are filters along the lymph
fluid channels. Lymph fluid leaves the
breast and eventually goes back into the
bloodstream. The lymph nodes try to
catch and trap cancer cells before they
reach other parts of the body.
When lymph nodes are free, or clear,
of cancer, the test results are called
Since 1996, ASP programmers have faced one upgrade after another, often with no
extremely visible advantages until version 3.x—it’s been quite a wild ride. Now we
have the first significant improvement in ASP programming within our grasp—
ASP.NET.Our reliance on a watered-down version of Visual Basic has been alleviated
now that ASP.NET pages may be programmed in both Microsoft’s new and
more powerful version of Visual Basic or the latest version of C++: C#, which is
more Web friendly.ASP.NET allows programmers and developers to work with both
C # programmers at any level need to learn about LINQ (Language-Integrated Query),
Microsoft’s breakthrough technology for simplifying and unifying data access from any data
source. With LINQ you can write more elegant and flexible code, not just to access databases
and files but also to manipulate data structures and XML.
LINQ for Visual C# 2008 is a short guide to the major features of LINQ. It thoroughly covers
LINQ to Objects, LINQ to SQL, LINQ to DataSet, and LINQ to XML. For instance, you’ll
Scattered throughout the tutorial there are a number of sections devoted more to explaining
the basics of XML than to programming exercises. They are listed here so as to form an
XML thread you can follow without covering the entire programming tutorial: Understanding XML and the Java XML APIs explains the basics of XML
and gives you a guide to the acronyms associated with it. It also provides an overview
of the JavaTM XML APIs you can use to manipulate XML-based data, including the Java
API for XML Parsing ((JAXP).
Welcome to the XML.NET Developer’s Guide! We have taken great care to create a
