Microsoft and Sun Microsystems have clashed over control of the Extensible Markup Language (XML).

XML has evolved as a standard way to share data over the Internet and is a Worldwide Web Consortium standard. There is no common standard, however, for the delivery vehicle for XML.

The two rival companies drew up battle lines earlier this week with Sun and its partners announcing "a new milestone" in the development of ebXML infrastructure. The Sun version is being championed by the standards group OASIS and the United Nations.

At the same time, Microsoft announced the manufacture release of BizTalk Server 2000, which will be its XML orchestration server. The BizTalk server allows customers to interconnect e-marketplaces.
