    To store data in a standardized file format. If all computer programs would save their data in XML format, it would make exchanging information between these programs very simple.

    Yes, and to have an open, human readable source file. XML is much like HTML in that you can open an XML source file in your text editor and read the content, even if you know nothing about the format tags.
