EDI via the XML open standard differs greatly to other standards-based EDI, because XML is made up of information gathered into tags rather than having set positions for the data like the EDIFACT and X12 standard.

The use of tags within XML results in the files being a lot larger than other types of messages. Although the messages are larger, the tags within the code make the messages more readable to the human eye, allowing for quicker troubleshooting.
