About XML

eXtensible Markup Language (XML) is used to distribute content, including text and images, to multiple destinations. XML separates content from its appearance on a page or in a layout. XML files use tags that identify the content in the file. Because the content of an XML file is identified with tags, it can be repurposed for distribution in print, on-line, or in some other format, such as PDF.

XML files are not dependent upon a specific layout, and can be formatted to match the needs of the viewer or viewing device. For example, an XML version of a typical brochure might be formatted to display as a traditional vertical layout when printed. The same information can be converted to a horizontal layout for on-screen viewing as a PDF. The same content can also be converted to HTML and placed onto a web page.
