Most likely data repseneted as XML. Suppose you have two abstract pieces of data: name: John Smith salary: 10000 (whatever it means, curently Computer Science isn't concerned with measurement units too much ) You can represent your data in many ways, for example in some proprietary format: name="John Smith", salary="10000" or in "comma separated values" (CSV) format John Smith,10000 or if you choose XML format <root> <name>John Smith</name> <salary>10000</salary> </root> now your data are XML encoded.
