Hour 24. Planning for the Future of HTML > XML: Unity in Diversity

XML: Unity in Diversity

So far in this hour I've noted how HTML is in the right place at the right time to enable several key changes in business and interpersonal communication. As the people and companies of the world become more connected and dependent upon one another, HTML's capability to make all information technology easier to use and less constrained by geography seems almost magical.

Even more magically, HTML has enabled an explosion of new media formats and incompatible file types, while at the same time providing the first truly universal format for exchanging all types of information. The limitations of the HTML language itself have stood in the way of it truly fulfilling this important role, however. To address these limitations, the World Wide Web Consortium has created a new language called XML, or eXtensible Markup Language.
