Sure! You're in the right place.
Checkout our XML links page compiled by Mapraputa. Since you're a beginner, I suggest you visit the tutorials and FAQ pages first.
You will only need a text editor and a web browser( IE/Netscape )to start playing with XML. Create the documents in the text editor and view it in the browser. Once you're ready to move on, you can think of downloading the parsers.
Good luck and don't hesitate to ask questions
Cheers

Parsers are used so developers don't have to run through all the text in an xml file and determine what is a tag, and what is data. Basically ...write it once (the parser)... and call it many times (all of us)

I put together quite a detailed explanation of some of the XML terms, which you might want to look at, in another thread in this forum.
