InTouch Machine Edition's use of XML

XML is growing in importance in the industrial automation world from embedded systems to human machine interfaces, to distributed systems and database management. It has become the de facto standard for data communication between different applications, systems and throughout the Internet. XML is a huge opportunity for cost savings, interoperability and new opportunities. InTouch Machine Edition (ITME) brings XML support to the plant floor, allowing for dynamic, autonomous, and automated data exchange between applications (such as ITME to or from the Wonderware System Platform) . XML makes E-automation a reality by allowing plant-floor dynamic data in XML format to be accessed easily and incorporated in other software products and Web applications. This post covers the reasons for using XML as well as differences between XML and HTML in the industrial automation context.
