What is an XML file?

An XML file is an XML (Extensible Markup Language) data file that uses tags to define objects and object attributes. It is formatted much like an .HTML document, but uses custom tags to define objects and the data within each object. XML files can be thought of as a text-based database.

More Information

XML files have become a standard way of storing and transferring data between programs and over the Internet. Because they are formatted as text documents, they can be edited by a basic text editor.
