Learn how to store and process information in XML-based languages, design and describe documents using XML standards. XML is a descendant of SGML, the Standard Generalized Markup Language, one of the first languages that use tags to describe data that otherwise would be treated as plain text. Two main applications of SGML are now in use: HTML - used mostly for presentation, and XML - for storage of information encompassed in tags. XML is extensible, which means it allows to define a lot of domain-specific languages following the same rules of creating XML documents. This lets the authors describe document contents using Document Type Definitions and XML Schemas, validate documents and process them in Document Object Model, using XSL Transformations, and exchange data between systems in XML formats.
