XML (Extensible Markup Language)
XML (Extensible Markup Language) is a subset of SGML designed for delivery on the web. At present the standard is being developed under the auspices of the W3C
Consortium. The activities are controlled through a wide variety of working groups within the W3C
whose site includes details of current activities, discussion groups, links to developer mailing lists, status of recommendations, drafts and final recommendations (Note: the W3C
issues"Recommendations" rather than "Standards".)
The range of information and resources related XML has expanded considerably, and continues to do so. In an attempt to keep our coverage brief we have published below edited news items and resources that have been generated through the El.pub Weekly news service. Due to the speed of developments in this area, resources featured on the page have the tendency to "age" fairly rapidly. Readers are therefore advised to consult more widely concerning the subject of XML.
