This article addresses the implications of the new Web meta-language XML for World Wide Web searching. Compared to HTML, XML is more concerned with structure of data than documents. These XML data structures, especially when declared in document type definitions, should prove conducive to precise, context rich searching. Some of the directions the XML language is intended to move are briefly covered. Additionally, trends in World Wide Web development with respect to beta versions of the XML language are discussed.
