What does XML do?
Actually, XML does not do anything. Yes, that’s true.!! Sounds confusing ? Excellent..! XML is used to store data
according to our database structure. It can not manipulate or change the data being stored. XML is software
independent data storing and carrying language.

As seen the above XML data is just storing the required data according to the user defined tags and doing NOTHING
to them. Maybe now you are understanding the above statement.
Actually, XML is used to separate data from HTML. Think of yourself developing a dynamic page for your website
that let’s say displays the latest news about you. Now, if you use XML and store the data in another file, you would
save yourself from updating the whole HTML page code every time you want to update the information. Just change
the data of the XML file accordingly and safely.
