XMPP (Extensible Messaging and Presence Protocol) is a protocol based on Extensible Markup Language (XML) and intended for instant messaging. Most people will know XMPP from Jabber. It is an open protocol not like Skype or others.

The product i am working on is using it for chat.
Is XMPP just a XML which is exchanged between client and server in a chat session ?
Whats special about the XML which XMPP has ?

Are all chat clients which use XMPP means they are bound to use <message> tag etc which are specified in XMPP or they can use there own XML's to communicate ?

Thanks
