XBRL (eXtensible Business Reporting Language)
An XML-based markup language developed for financial reporting. It provides a standards-based method to prepare, publish (in a variety of formats), reliable extract and automatically exchange financial statements.*

XML
eXtensible Markup Language; a subset of SGML defined by W3C.

XML Schema
Schemas are used to define and document XML applications.

XML/A (XMLA for Analysis)
A set of XML message interfaces that use the industry standard simple object access protocol, or SOAP, to define the data access interaction between a client application and an analytical data provider (OLAP and data mining) working over the Internet. The jointly published XML/A specification allows corporate developers, third-party tool vendors and other partners to query analytical data providers in a standard way, just as it has been possible to do with all the SQL-based relational databases for many years. The goal for XML/A is to provide an open, standard access application program interface for the OLAP providers and consumers.*

XPath
XML path language's primary purpose is to address parts of an XML document. In support of this primary purpose, it also provides basic facilities for manipulation of strings, numbers and booleans.

XPointer
XML pointer language is based on the XML Path language (XPath) and supports addressing into the internal structures of XML documents. It allows for examination of a hierarchical document structure and choice of its internal parts based on various properties, such as element types, attribute values, character content and relative position.

XQuery
Is a query language that uses the structure of XML intelligently. It can express queries across all these kinds of data, whether physically stored in XML or viewed as XML via middleware. XQuery is designed to be broadly applicable across many types of XML data sources.

XSLT
Extensible stylesheet language transformation (XSLT) is a language for transforming XML documents into other XML documents. XSLT is designed for use as part of XSL, which is a stylesheet language for XML.
