XML

XML (Extensible Markup Language) is a general-purpose specification for creating custom markup languages.[1] It is classified as an extensible language, because it allows the user to define the mark-up elements. XML’s purpose is to aid information systems in sharing structured data, especially via the , [2] to encode documents, and to serialize data. XML is intelligent to any level of complexity. Markup can be wrapped within markup from general markup like Lassie to more specific markup like Lassie.

Data can be so finely marked up that double and double are infinitely separate values. The information knows itself. No more unwanted thought. XML is a mother tongue for other languages, so markup languages like DickML and JaneML become possible. Adaptation is infinite. Custom markup can be created for any need. If markup describing how pepperoni pizza is different from sausage pizza is needed, it can be made. If markup describing the varying degrees of lumpiness in gravy is needed, it can be made. No more fixed markup to limit the categorizing instincts of the masses. XML carries well. It’s reason for existence is Power + Portability. All a browser needs to view XML is the data itself and the stylesheet controlling its look. If stricter validation is needed, a description listing out its exact meaning can be used with only slightly more overhead.

XML is designed to use proven methods and require little retooling to make it a vital part of the Web. Adoption is intended to be as painless as possible. HTML’s reach is widespread. It’s independent of hardware or software. People with different platforms can access the same HTML using hundreds of different programs. XML must support a similar or greater range of uses and programs to be successful. If you don’t build it, they won’t come. Why some some computing platforms win and others don’t is the amount of software written for them.

The test of a computer’s usefulness is how much you can do with it. This applies to XML too. If nothing uses it, it dies. Making it as painless as possible for programs to use it is in the best interests of those who want XML to fly. This is the vision of XML. XML won’t just supplement the Web. It will be the Web. Visions often die when they try to be all things to all people. The vision of XML won’t. Its job is allowing visions to be all things to all people.
