Subject: What makes XML so suitable for transmission...

text/plain (18 lines)

I read in most literature on the subject that XML is...
"suited to delivery and interoperability over the Web." (Peter Flynn's XML
FAQ quoted here - although there are many similar).
Why? What is it that makes XML/HTML and Mark-up Languages in general suited
to delivery across the internet. OK so they are text documents... but why
use tags and such like. Does this method provide any specific technical
benefits or is it just neat & tidy/fashionable!!..
