XML Tutorial Beginners Tutorial - Introduction to XML For Web Developers, Part 2 - As was discussed in part one, XML allows you to generate an infinite number of custom tags sets for your documents. However, though you are free to be as innovative as you want with the XML tag sets that you create, you must follow the constraints of the XML tag set generation standards exactly.
