Understanding XML

Recall that XML stands for Extensible Markup Language, a programming language that works like HTML to tag items on a page. HTML is used to describe how items should be formatted, and XML is used to define the items themselves. XML is beneficial because it enables you to use information in different documents in different ways, without having to retype it or copy and paste it each time.

An XML tag, or the XML reference to a specific item, can be mapped to particular styles in your document so that when you apply the tag, the item takes on the proper formatting. You can also store XML text in a database so it can be easily accessed and repurposed for any document.
