the only XML you can write something that could be called a programme with is XSL. despite that XML is just a data format like HTML.

XML stands for Extensible Markup Language, is a simple text based file like HTML for that you don't need any special software installed in your computer. Just NotePad or TextPad can be used for XML writing.

XML file is used to store data in a sequential format like database. It is not used to represent data like HTML.

To represent data of a XML file you have to use CSS or XSL (Extensible Style Sheet Language) file.

And to validate data types used in XML file you have to use DTD or XSD file.

This files have to link to XML file to render style or to check the data types.

A HTML file has predefined tags but an XML file has no predefined tags. You can user your own tag names for your XML file.

The first line of an XML file is:
Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
you can learn more about XML and other from w3schools.

XML link XML

CSS link CSS


DTD link DTD

and all other tutorials of related files to XML you can get there.

it would work, though I recommend an editor with syntax/tag highlighting.

It works fine. but if you like to do work free without error you should use any XML editor software as Dormilich said. because, XML has some rules those you have to maintain, which are not mandatory for HTML. And XML editor can help you to find out the mistakes by you and you can fix those easily.

Hope it's help you. :)
