Techopedia explains Microsoft XML Core Services (MSXML)
Extensible markup language (XML) is used to display, transport and exchange arbitrary data structures. After reviewing XML’s methodology, Microsoft created MSXML as a proprietary version for its core services. MSXML, which is not identical to XML, is a bridging platform that helps programmers build XML-based applications, which can be easily operated and executed on all Windows-based platforms.
MSXML provides the following services:
- Sign and verify XML documents through XML signatures
- XML schema language
- DOM for accessing XML-based documents
