That is quite misleading. XML is a *data* markup language. I'd much
prefer to see something closer to the w3c's definition (see
http://w3.org/XML/). Something like:
Extensible Markup Language (XML) is a simple, very flexible text format
used to exchange a wide variety of data on the Web and elsewhere.
Aside from that, it looks good to me.
