XML stands for eXtensible Markup Language. XML is a markup language much like HTML that you saw in the previous page, and looks the same too! XML was designed to be self-descriptive, in other words, when you look at it, it should be clear what is is based on the tags you define, sorta like HTML uses when it wants to describe an image, and to mark up bold text. But, XML has fallen out of favor due to it’s parsing complexity and verboseness.
