XML

XML

Extensible Markup Language (XML) evolved from SGML—the granddaddy of all markup languages. XML allows developers to create their own tags, making it possible to integrate XML-based content with a variety of other data. Unlike the rather limited vocabulary of HTML, XML allows the developer to include a pointer to a Document Type Definition (DTD) at the top of a page. The DTD contains the developer's XML tags and their definitions. This string of code tells the receiving browser—up front—what the code making up the page's tags means. These tags are then interpreted for display by the receiving browser.

XML allows you to develop and maintain a vocabulary customized for the purposes of your particular data.
