XML Information Set (Infoset) allows you to describe an XML document as a series of objects with specialized properties. Read about this abstract data to better understand the basic structure of XML.
XML Information Set (Second Edition) [W3C Recommendation], also known as the XML Infoset, defines an abstract way of describing an XML document as a series of objects, called information items, with specialized properties. This abstract data set incorporates aspects of XML documents defined in XML 1.0, XML Namespaces, and XML Base. The XML Infoset is used as the foundation for several other specifications that try to break down XML documents into some collection of constituent objects.
