- Type of document:
- Extensible Markup Language (XML) is a simple, flexible text format derived from SGML (ISO
8879). Originally designed to meet the needs of large-scale electronic publishing, XML is now
being increasingly used to exchange a wide variety of data on the Web and elsewhere.
- Workflow stage:
- 1.2, 1.3, 1.8, 1.9
- Business value:
- The aim of XML was to achieve the benefits of SGML in a Web environment, to eliminate some
of the inherent problems of HTML and extend the powers of the Internet. The use of XML is
critical for any organization wishing to operate over the Internet.
