The World Wide Web is of strategic importance as a global repository for information and a means of communicating and sharing knowledge. Its explosive growth has caused deep changes in all the aspects of human life, has been a driving force for the development of modern applications (e.g., Web portals, digital libraries, wrapper generators, etc.), and has greatly simplified the access to existing sources of information, ranging from traditional DBMS to semi-structured Web repositories. The adoption by the WWW consortium (W3C) of XML (eXtensible Markup Language) as the new standard for information exchange among Web applications has led researchers to investigate classical problems in the new environment of repositories containing large amounts of data in XML format.
