XML (eXtensible Markup Language): The ASCII of the 21st Century

XML has caused a revolution in the IT world. It is being applied in a great many fields and for various purposes: electronic archive and contents management, web publishing, interchange of electronic documents, internal format of tools, software, e-commerce, education and many more fields too numerous to mention here. Among the less obvious fields are: chemistry, biology, theology, tourism, law and health.
