Advantages of XML

Advantages of XML 

1) Definition of own Tags: The most important asset of XML is the freedom of being able to define the structure of information by being able to define one's own tags. This helps in the search and retrieval of precise data. 

2) Different Views: Same XML can be used to generate different views. 

3) Platform Independent: Information is platform-independent and therefore ensures information longevity. 

4) Ease of Information Exchange: Exchange of information across applications is easy. 

5) Standards Creation: XML enables creating standards like MATHML and Chemical Markup Language. 

6) Vendor-Neutral: Moreover, as XML is vendor-neutral and no one company owns it, one is not tied down to one particular vendor.
