3.1 Related Standards and Recommendations

The XML Recommendation describes the class of data objects called XML documents and loosely describes the behavior of computer programs that read or write these objects. The XML Recommendation and the standards shown in Table 3-1 identify the standards and specifications necessary to understand basic XML Version 1.0 [XML] and construct computer programs to process it.

A number of related XML recommendations from the W3C extend XML itself or provide ways to specify processing of XML. Table 3-2 lists those recommendations.
