XML- Introduction


​​​​​​​XML​
​​
​​
​​
​​
​​​​​It stands for EXtensible Markup Language. I recently had an encounter with the basics of this language, so I ​
​thought of sharing it.​
​The language is designed to store and transport data. (and it’s primary purpose is NOT to display data. That ​
​work is done by the HTML and CSS. It is just the data handler, though it can also be used to display data ​
​with the help of CSS as we will see afterwards.)​
​The most important thing to know is that the XML tags are not predefined, they are user defined. This is a ​
​very important requirement as the data carries many features which can be easily shown by using own tags.​
​​
​For example, for a CD collection record I can use tags like :​
​​
​​
​​

    ​​

  • ​​​​​<rec_name>​​​​​​​​​
    ​​
    ​​
    ​​
  • ​​​​​<my_collection>​​​​​​​​​
    ​​
    ​​
    ​​
  • ​​​​​<cd_collection>​​​​​​​​​
    ​​
    ​​
    ​​

​​​​​and may more…​
