6. XML

XML (the eXtensible Markup Language) is a data description language that can be used for storing data. It is particularly useful as a format for sharing information between different software systems. The information in this chapter describes XML 1.0, which is a W3C Recommendation. Within this chapter, any code written in a sans-serif oblique font represents a general template; that part of the code will vary depending on the names of the elements and the names of the attributes that are used to store a particular data set.
