If HTML is a presentation language, XML (Extensible Markup Language) is a data-description language, allowing users to define their own tags, making it easier for them to exchange and share data, develop documents and enhance apps. The purpose of a DTD (Document Type Definition) is to outline the document structure using legal elements of an XML document, and can be declared inline or as an external reference
