Using XML in Flash

Extensible Markup Language (XML) is a simple, but very flexible text information system. Originally designed to meet the challenges of large-scale electronic publishing, XML also plays an important role in the exchange of a wide variety of data on the Web and elsewhere; including Flash documents.

The main difference between XML and HTML, is that XML was designed to carry data. XML is not a replacement for HTML. XML and HTML were designed with different goals: XML was designed to describe data and to focus on what data is, and HTML was designed to display data and to focus on how data looks. In other words, HTML is about displaying information, while XML is about describing information. It was created to structure, store and to send information.
