What is XML?
The XML (eXtensible Markup Language) is an extensible markup language. Designed to be a language with a simple formal syntax that facilitates the creation and manipulation of documents by both computer programs by humans. XML is used for communication on the Internet where a higher level of reliability and security is required. The extensible nature of XML means that you can create markup tailored to the needs of your application and limited only by the language's syntax rules. XML documents can contain comments, declarations, elements, and XML processing instructions. All of these elements in a document are structured using XML markup. XML files have the extension *.xml.
