Welcome to “Cooking with XML” the website devoted to designers using XML for print and Web applications.
XML stands for eXtensible Mark-up Language. It was originally developed for the World Wide Web. Although it is being used in hundreds of applications across the web, today XML is finding a home in printed form and multimedia, too. The power of XML rests in its ability to identify and organize data and its popularity is due to the fact that XML is a open-source technology that is not owned or controled by any single individual or company.
With XML you can transfer data quickly and easily from one application to another. For example, Web-based weather and sports services are using XML to stream weather reports and box scores to thousands of clients instantly.

Print newspapers or magazines? XML can help you get your editorial copy onto your Web site or into a content management system almost instantly!
Newspaper and magazine publishers around the world print millions of pages of information every year. In the past, this information was stored off-line and difficult, if not impossible, to access and use. Many of these publishers are spending millions of dollars to manually strip this information out of the printed page and reformat it for the Internet and other electronic mediums.
