<p>Libxml is the XML C library developped for the Gnome project. XML itself
is a metalanguage to design markup languages, i.e. text language where
semantic and structure are added to the content using extra &quot;markup&quot;
information enclosed between angle bracket. HTML is the most well-known
markup language.</p>
