Join Joe Marini for an in-depth discussion in this video What is XML?, part of XML Essential Training.
- [Instructor] Let's begin by addressing two…of the most common questions about XML.…What is XML, and what is it used for?…Alright so, what is XML?…XML is the Extensible Markup Language.…It gets its name from the X, M, and L…in the words Extensible Markup Language.…XML became a W3C recommendation or standard…way back in 1998.…The W3C, of course, is the World Wide Web Consortium,…which is one of the standards bodies that proposes…and standardizes various ways of working…with internet related technologies.…
So, XML has been around for awhile,…and it's in pretty wide use.…It's a tag-based syntax, very much like HTML.…So if you're already comfortable working with HTML,…then XML is going to look very familiar to you.…It uses the same kind of tag syntax…and same kind of attributes and so on.…Now, you don't have to know HTML…in order to use this course and learn about XML.…But if you already know HTML,…you're going to feel very much at home.…Now having said that, I want to point out that XML…is not a replacement for HTML.…
