XML
Last modified: Tuesday, October 11, 2005 

Short for Extensible Markup Language, a specification developed by the W3C. XML is a pared-down version of SGML, designed especially for Web documents. It allows designers to create their own customized tags, enabling the definition, transmission, validation, and interpretation of data between applications and between organizations.

Also see Understanding "Web Services" in the "Did You Know...?" section of Webopedia.
