Just in one or two words:
XML is used to structure the data in order to exchange this data with others that U don't know (or at least, U could not enforce them use your own data structure).
XML is widely used in order to decline several "display channels". For example, a server request will send to the client XML data that will be formated (or Transformed with XSLT) into HTML (if the client is a web browser) , or WML (if the client is a mobile phone) or another XML (if the client is another Business server ... it's B2B !)
That's all , folks!
