XML documentation

Is there any reference available through which I can find some description for some of the XML elements.

For example, I'm trying to search for a description of the "include" element, but couldn't find a clear result.

So, I think that there must be some documentation for XML elements. Is tehre?

Thanks.

There's no such thing. People can use anything they want for an element name and they can choose to have it mean whatever they like.

Unless perhaps this is another one of your ongoing series of questions about Ant. If it is, then yes, such documentation for Ant does exist.

The ultimate authority on XML is of course the W3C.
