Re: ACTION 610: Draft Meta Formats section for W3C site

Here's a go at some text for the XML paragraph

  XML provides a simple standardised way to serialize information
  representable as labelled trees with annotations and
  cross-references, allowing a free choice of markup vocabulary. This
  not only makes it well-suited for human-authored documents,
  particularly given its facility for mixed content (plain and
  marked-up text) and built-in support for Unicode, but also means it
  is a useful syntax for all kinds of machine-to-machine data
  transfer.  XHTML, Docbook and DITA are examples of XML-based
  languages primarily intended for documents; machine-to-machine uses
  include UPnP (for networked device discovery) and AEMP (for
  construction equipment).
