    It took me a while to figure out what XML is actually for and what the big fuss was about - and now I'm thinking of all kinds of cool ways to use it. The key is to understand that XML is simply a very clever standardised way of structuring data (for example, for file formats or transmitting data across the 'net) so that it can be parsed by any of the hundreds of programming languages and applications that also understand XML.

    The best overal description of XML I have seen is here: XML in 10 points (by the W3C)
