Xnfo is an initiative for structuring demoscene information thanks to an open and evolutive standard. The basis of the project is to create an XML standard, with corresponding DTD and XSD.
The project is composed of a suite of at least 8 example tools made to manage and exploit XML files, and also to link with existing information.
Read Introduction to Xnfo to get more details about the project, most of your questions can find their answer here.
