Extensible Markup Language, or XML, is the universally adopted language put forth by the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) to facilitate the flow and identification of data over the Internet. XML is used to facilitate the identification of information on the Internet through customized tags. XML is called extensible because it is not a fixed format like HTML (Hyper Text Markup Language). XML allows a designer to build customized markup languages for limitless documents.

XML is an important development because it removes the dependence on HTML as well as SGML, both which were holding back Web development. XML allows designers to create customized tags, enabling the identification, transmission and validation of data and text over the Internet. The tags can be used to enable correspondence management systems to easily identify and process received information.

Learning to Use XML

There are several free online tutorials that will introduce a user to XML. To get a better grasp on what XML is and how to properly use it there are fee based courses available. These fee based courses will thoroughly cover how to create, validate, and format XML data for use on the Web. Having basic knowledge of HTML is required if you want to understand XML and how to use it.

XML training courses can be taken via Internet classrooms or real classrooms. Internet based courses will generally cost less than classroom courses. Introductory classes will last at least three days while more detailed and difficult classes will take up to one week to complete.
