XQuery

XQuery or XML Query Language is a W3C specification that provides flexible query facilities to extract data from real and virtual documents and collections both locally and on the World Wide Web, providing interaction between the Web world and the database world. It is a standardized way of searching through semi-structured data that is either physically stored as XML or virtualized as XML.  The XQuery effort at W3C is lead by the XML Query Working Group.
