XML | HTML | API
XML (eXtensible Markup Language) is a text-based data description language designed to store and transmit structured information in a readable form. It is an extension of HTML (HyperText Markup Language), which is used for formatting and displaying web pages.
XML is widely used to store and exchange data, especially in the context of web services and API interfaces. It allows data to be stored and processed in a structured format that is understood by different applications and platforms.
