XML Tags Vs. HTML Tags
Although similar, XML tags define data, whereas HTML tags define the page layout (in this example, font size and a bold date). All elements are wrapped within "start" and "end" tags, also called "open" and "close" tags. The tags themselves begin with a less-than (<) character and end with a greater-than (>) character. All end tags begin with less-than-slash (</).
