What does XTML mean or stand for ?
XTML is used in telecommunication to transfer signals and data over a physical communications channel.This delivery of this type of network is more challenging to that of internet data as internet uses simple protocols to deliver and decipher data across a transmission line.
XML on the other hand is a language that is based on the XML language and the reason why it is called “extensible” is because it needs to do more than what HTTP (hyper text markup language) did for the internet.
Telephone communication is far more complex and “heavy” as it deals with voice data being transmitted in real time,hence the protocol needs to be “able to do more” and needs have more functionality as well as more capabilities.
