XML syntax

XML documents must contain a root element. All other elements must be nested within the root element.

All elements can have sub (children) elements. Elements with sub elements are also called Nodes.


A XML document should always have a XML declaration included. It defines the XML version and the character encoding used in the document.

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8" ?>

Unlike HTML, XML tags are case sensitive. E.g., the Tag <Root> is different from the Tag <root>
