Hi All,
I am just listing the applications of XML. If you know other applications please add to the list.
I have found XML to be useful for the following things:
Generating web pages from applications - the application can output XML and pass it through an XSL stylesheet to add all the pretty HTML eye-candy.
Creating "standardized" web pages/information that can then be formatted in different ways easily using XSL.
Moving data between different parts of the system.
Configuration files.
Through XML-RPC its used for Remote Procedure calls.
