Need help getting started with XML? The XML Xperts group was formed to to help developers with
XML-based development. We hope it gets you well on your way --
whether you want to understand what XML is all about, explore Ajax,
mashups or RSS, or prepare for XML certification.
XML, or EXtensible Markup Language, is a platform-independent way to represent data. Simply put, XML enables you to create data that can read by any application on any platform. You can even edit and create it by hand, because it is based on the same tag-based technology that underlies HTML.
