So what is XML? It's a markup language, used to describe thestructure of data in meaningful ways. Anywhere that data isinput/output, stored, or transmitted from one place to another, isa potential fit for XML's capabilities. Perhaps the most well-knownapplications are web-related (especially with the latestdevelopments in handheld web access—for which some of thetechnology is XML-based). However, there are many othernon-web-based applications for which XML is useful—forexample, as a replacement for (or to complement) traditionaldatabases, or for the transfer of financial information betweenbusinesses. News organizations, along with individuals, have alsobeen using XML to distribute syndicated news stories and blogentries.
This book aims to teach you all you need to know aboutXML—what it is, how it works, what technologies surround it,and how it can best be used in a variety of situations, from simpledata transfer to using XML in your web pages. It answers thefundamental questions:
* What is XML?
* How do you use XML?
* How does it work?
* What can you use it for, anyway?
