As you can see, each element has an opening tag and a closing tag (for
example, the cost of a class is enclosed with a beginning <COST> and ending
</COST> tag. The tagged elements are nested inside other tags; for example,
each class record begins and ends with a <CLASS> tag; inside those tags,
additional tags are nested for each of the individual data items stored for that
particular class.
Because XML allows you to describe the content of the data, you can use
that class information as easily in a database as you can in a spreadsheet,
a word-processing document, a report, or an e-mail. Using an XML schema,
which tells the document it’s attached to how to read and apply the XML data,
you can make XML data usable in many different forms in all sorts of different
areas, from one end of your organization to the other.
