What Is XML and How to I Get a Tracker to Validate My Site?

by nForms on December 25, 2011

I am trying to get signed on to a blog tracker to track my site. I have a meta tag and everything but it is asking about XML and I have no clue what it is and when I research it is seems as if all the advice is for people who already know a bit about it.. I know NOTHING about it at all. Please help!

XML is eXtensible Markup Language. It’s a markup language like HTML, but it’s syntax is crazy. You can declare you own elements and all kinds of weird stuff. It is used a lot by really advanced developers, but I don’t know much about how it is used.

If you know nothing, don’t mess with it. You probably set your blog tracker up wrong. I’d try erasing what you did and trying again, following each step very closely.

The Extensible Markup Language (XML) is a general-purpose specification for creating custom markup languages. It is classified as an extensible language because it allows its users to define their own elements. Its primary purpose is to help information systems share structured data, particularly via the Internet.

Here is a validator:
http://www.w3.org/2001/03/webdata/xsv

P.S. w3.org has an HTML and CSS validator as well. w3 is considered the standard in web development.
