The eXtensible Mark-Up Language (XML) developed by the World Wide Web Consortium can be used to develop a framework that improves the interoperabiiity of data in support of marine observing systems. There have been several initiatives investigating how this can be achieved in practice, but to date there has been no strong direction that the marine community should take. This paper presents the findings of an international project tasked with providing such direction. In particular it provides 'pre-standardisation' advice and justification to the international marine community on the use of XML standards for data interoperability. Importantly this embraces the very broad extent of the marine community, covering the very many disciplines and domain areas that exist. This paper is a subset of a full position paper by the MarineXML initiative on the use of XML for marine data exchange, This paper can be downloaded from the MarineXML website.(
