XML in .NET

Hi!, I hope can explain me this.
Suppose I want to study the .Net technology, why are they requiring me to study XML first before proceeding in .NET (VB.net or ASP.net)?,

Is XML really required in .NET, why do they call .Net as an XML Based Programming

Since I already know the XML and I VB6 Programming
WHERE and WHEN can I Apply XML in VB.NEt Or ASP.NET.

Thanks in Advance,

Percival

SUMMARY Microsoft .NET introduces a new suite of XML APIs built on industry standards such as DOM, XPath, XSD, and XSLT. The .NET Framework XML classes also include innovations that offer convenience, better performance, and a more familiar programming model, tightly coupled with the new .NET data access APIs—ADO .NET. XmlWriter, XmlReader, and XmlNavigator classes and classes that derive from them, including XMLTextReader and XMLTextWriter, encapsulate a number of functionalities that previously had to be accomplished manually. A discussion of the XMLDOM-Document is also included.

XML plays a huge role in Web Services and SOAP.  Also look to the new MS Office System to make use of XML.  If you don't know the ins and outs of XML, you're going to be in trouble for the future of development.
