XML (Extensible Markup Language) is a widely used markup language that defines a set of rules for encoding and structuring data in a human-readable format. It was designed to store and transport data in a way that is both platform-independent and self-descriptive. XML does not have predefined tags like HTML; instead, it allows users to define their own custom tags to represent data elements.
