Exploring XML

The current XML standard is based on an ISO standard, but the most commonly used version is the one maintained and published by W3C (World Wide Web Consortium). Because a file in XML format contains not only the data but also a description of the structure of the data, XML-enabled receiving systems know exactly how to process the data from the information included in the file.

An XML document can contain data from a single table or from an entire database. An XML document can also have supporting files that describe details about the table schema (for example, field properties and indexes) or that describe how the recipient should lay out (format) the data for display (for example, fonts and column sizes).
