In this chapter, we provide a brief description of the development of markup languages, describe their role in the context of web application development and deployment, and finally provide an example of an XML application for a simple Web page displaying a typical sales invoice. Our objective in this example is to illustrate the relationship between the relational and XML representation of data that is required for the use of XML in the development of web-based applications in electronic commerce.
