Chapter 9. Creating Documents for the Web > Creating an XML Document

Creating an XML Document

Web documents are coded with Hypertext Markup Language (HTML) so that they can be displayed in a Web browser, no matter what that browser might be. HTML is a small, fixed subset of the Standard Generalized Markup Language (SGML), a comprehensive system for coding the structure of text documents and other forms of data so that they can be used in a variety of environments. The Extensible Markup Language (XML) is another subset of SGML. However, instead of being fixed like HTML, XML can be customized (extended) to store data so that it can be used in many ways or in many environments—for example, as text, in a database or spreadsheet, or as a Web page.
