Questions about XML


sorry if this sound stupid and novice, but I have never dealt with XML
data, yet. I followed the discussion on the list about implementing XML
within GNOME. I know that you XML is kind of SGML data, where you have a
structured layout within your file. It was said, that XML can store
arbitrary any data, but how is this done? Is this a kind of generell
configuration data reading library, where you provide the layout of your
configuration file and the library fills in the datastructures? Is it
possible to write a generic configuration engine, which is capable of
configuring everything with the knowledge of the layout? 

Or what else can XML do to me? 

I thought about that, cause in the future I need to store some complex
data in a configuration file, and was thinking about the way doing it.
