Many organizations and companies delivering scientific information products are looking at the use of the so-called eXtensible Mark-up Language (XML) as a powerful alternative to conventional binary file storage and information exchange. Hence, XML can be regarded as an extension to the well-known HTML or Hyper Text Mark-up Language, which is the language most frequently encountered when viewing web pages on the Internet.
