XML is used in many aspects of Web development and is often used to simplify the storage and sharing of data.
If you need to display dynamic data in an HTML document, you will spend a lot of time editing HTML whenever the data changes.
With XML, data can be stored in separate XML files. This allows you to focus on using HTML/CSS for display and layout, and ensures that modifying the underlying data eliminates any changes to HTML.
In the real world, computer systems and data use incompatible formats to store data.
XML data is stored in plain text, thus providing a data storage method independent of software and hardware.
This makes it easier to create data that different applications can share.
One of the most time-time-time-facing challenges for developers has been the exchange of data between incompatible systems on the Internet.
Swapping data in XML reduces this complexity because data can be read through a variety of incompatible applications.
Upgrading to a new system (hardware or software platform) is always time-consuming. Large amounts of data must be converted, and incompatible data is often lost.
XML data is stored in text format. This makes it easier for XML to scale or upgrade to a new operating system, new application, or new browser without losing data.
Different applications have access to your data, not just on HTML pages, but also from XML data sources.
With XML, your data can be used by a variety of reading devices (handheld computers, voice devices, news readers, etc.) and for blind or other disabled people.
Many new Internet languages are created through XML.
Here are some examples:
If they're all rational, let future applications use XML to exchange data.
In the future, there may be word processing software, spreadsheet programs, and databases that can read each other's data in XML format without using any conversion programs.
