Extensible Markup Language




no charge

1.0 Fifth Edition



The Extensible Markup Language (XML) is a subset of SGML (Standard Generalized Markup Language, ISO 8879:1986(E) that is completely described in the standard document. Its goal is to enable generic SGML to be served, received, and processed on the World Wide Web in the way that is now possible with HTML. XML has been designed for ease of implementation and for interoperability with both SGML and HTML.

The World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) is an international community where Member organizations, a full-time staff, and the public work together to develop Web standards. Led by Web inventor Tim Berners-Lee and CEO Jeffrey Jaffe, W3C's mission is to lead the Web to its full potential.
