What do you mean by "active XML application" ? XML is used everyday in real
life to exchange datas in particular. Keep in mind XML is not a programming
language...
Also, you certainly should post to a XML dedicated group.

I'm not exactly sure what you mean, but you're either asking if any
real application uses XML, or if any applications have been written in XML.

Applications can't be written in XML it's a markup language only,
but many applications use XML to store and/or process some kind of data.

Web browsers (including IE, to some extent) support and use XML
XHTML, RDF, SVG, etc... are all applications of the XML language.
Mozilla uses XUL (another XML based language) to describe the user
interface. Also, Apache Tomcat and other web servers use several XML
files for their configuration information. There are, of course, many
more; so, basically, if I've understood your question correctly; Yes,
there are lots!

Yes; XHTML portrays itself as one.

DocBook, RDF, SVG, SMIL, TEI, XLink, XPath, XPointer, XSLT are
examples of other applications of XML, do you need more?
