XML Language features
Use of custom tags: You can see that amidst using XML language, the users have the facility
to use their own customized tags. They are given the ability to define the order of the tags,
it display and so on. This also allows for the users to define the updated elements according
to their preference or requirement. At the same time, if you had been dealing with HTML
language, the tags and semantics would have remained inflexible.
With XML, content is separate from HTML/CSS: HTML/CSS is normally used for display and
layout of the content. At the same time, XML helps to store the content into separate XML
files, which enables you to edit or modify the look of the document or web page as
required. These changes can be made without altering any of the content.
Content modification is easy with XML: It is already been discussed that apart from storing
the data as separate XML files, it is also now more easy to make modifications as required to
the content. In the instance that HTML is being used, then to change the data would have
taken lot of work. Nevertheless, with XML, the modifications were made without any
disruption to the HTML codes used.
Data processed to be reused with XML: It is seen that, making use of XML language, data
processing services can be made more efficient or cost-effective. With XML, it is easier to
translate the webpages to the required languages, or even for text formatting, migration or
updating the system etc. Using XML, it also becomes easy to make use of the same data in
varied systems, thus saving time and costs for the data conversion process.
You can thus see here that with these features, XML has become the popular language to be
used to convert data. Other features adding to its popularity includes simplified data modification or transfer process, developing new languages etc.
