XML (Extensible Markup Language)

November 21, 2013  |   Posted by :   |     |   Comments Off on XML (Extensible Markup Language)»


Definition: XML is an open standard for describing and formatting data and documents.

What This Means: In the education IT world, XML has caught on as a preferred way to exchange data. SIF is XML based. PESC’s electronic student transcript standard is XML based. EDEN accepts XML files. Because XML is “self-defining,” knowing what is being exchanged is clear. XML is only a format like HTML. XML is more precise and rigid than HTML.
