Definition: XML and HR-XML

XML

XML stands for Extensible Mark-up Language. It is similar to HTML and is designed store and transport data (not for displaying data like HTML).


XML tags are defined by users and it is self descriptive in nature. It simply carries information.  It does not do anything except wrapping information in tags. A software code needs to be written to send, receive and display data.


A sample is shown below:

<note>

<to>ABC</to>

<from>XYZ</from>

<heading>INFO</heading>

<body>MSSG!</body>

</note>


As shown, the code contains sender (XYZ) and receiver (ABC) information. It also contains the heading and the information message. Here the tags <to>, <from> are not defined by XML. The user is free to define his/her tags and the document structure.
