XML is a standard used to create a text‐based structure for storing information. It is a set of rules used to lay out text to make it easy to navigate for computer programs. It works by separating style from content, a simple but revolutionary concept that is very applicable to the library and information environment. This guide offers an overview of XML, what it is, how and why it has been developed, how it works and where future developments might lead. In addition, the “Frequently used terms” section contains definitions of the terms and acronyms associated with XML that can be confusing to the beginner. The “Resources” section offers suggestions for further reading on the subject, to help in building on the basic overview offered here.
