Sorry you have not found the expositions of the XML standards easy to
use.  They are meant to be standards, not introductory texts (have you
ever tried reading the Algol 60 report, one of the most important
influences on programming language development, or the RFCs which
define HTTP or TCP/IP?).  There are lots of good introductory
tutorials out there, which many others have found accessible and
helpful -- I recommend starting at the Cover pages [1] and following
links from there.
