Ultimately, XML is a tool. It keeps your design work organized into practical compartments. The easy nature of the language doesn't require massive amounts of knowledge or an alphabet behind your name. XML saves time and keeps the design flow organized.

I think so yeah, XML is still common. But there is really not much to learn because you already know HTML and XML is very very similar. Should you ever need more advanced things like XSDs or XSLT you can just learn it as you need it.

WEB, need to create websites. Yes, this is the easiest language that you can learn and already earn money on creating websites

The W3Schools website also has a tutorial on it.

Yeah, and so i think sololearn should Include XML for the beginners who starts web designing if XML is that easy.

Besides idk why sololearn gives less importance to XML.

I agree! You can send feedback through the app now, hit the three dots top right :) Maybe if enough people write in they will give us some XML.

It would be very nice if XML course appeared on Sololearn.

Сергій Гавриленко Yeah, So true. Maybe we all can give feedback to add XML. I think that would help.

yes, atleast we should have some basic knowledge

I believe Json is preferred over xml for web development. However in a general sense, XML is still used for a variety of purposes. For example, ebook/audiobook metadata is imported/exported in ONIX which is an xml document standard for the publication industry.

now a days people using JSON lot more than XML

Husnain Ali sorry, i don't know that much! All i know XML is a old language and it's good to have know about it if one wants to be a good web developer.

it's a universally accepted standard and can transit through firewalls. it is strictly formatted.🤔

It's helpful to know, when you need it for example maintaining older code. But nowadays JSON is the preferred method for data transfer and most web development..

Yes, its nessasary.
