about XML

eXtensible Markup Language, XML, is an international standard for the interchange and storage of data. XML has a number of unique benefits: it is platform neutral and scalable, thereby providing the assurance that documents and data can be exchanged with absolute confidence. XML is self-describing, which means that data is tagged with a description of its content, making information understandable and useable when exchanged between parties. Finally, data encoded in XML is future proof and will withstand developments in software and hardware over time.
