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.

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

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.

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.

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..

Yeah I mean XML is good, but if you already know HTML and Javascript then you basiclly don't need it but I mean its a mix of both so it would be necessary only if you don't want to do the learning for HTML and Java-Script. 😅
