Extensible Markup Language (XML) is a markup language similar to HTML, but the difference between HTML and XML is HTML has predefined tags but in XML we can create our own tags. The format of XML is standardized, if we share or transmit the XML over other systems and platform the receiver still will be able to parse the data due to the standardized XML syntax. XHTML, MathML, SVG, XUL, XBL, RSS, RDF, etc are some languages based on XML. The php-xml package is a dependency package and it depends on the default version of PHP in Ubuntu. This package contains different types of modules for PHP like DOM, WDDX, XML, SimpleXML, and XSL modules.
