It's all about structure, and context. HTML is a well formed language. The least of the family of structured languages of which XML is part.

XML is well formed and valid, meaning that the tags are consistently begun and ended (well formed), and valid (correct within the structure and context).

The scheme or DTD determine the structure and context of the elements to each other.

You need to find a book that describes XML in that manner. I have found that to be much more informative and understandable that many others out there. I recommend Docbook V5, The Definitive Guide. http://oreilly.com/catalog/9780596805012/

If you really need an utter beginner's start with XML, any book in Barnes and Noble will help you because all of them were written by people who already know more than you, so reading them can't hurt you and may help you. Unless you are a Mozart-like prodigy, you can't learn enough in a few weeks to call yourself proficient in XML. But from your post I infer that for you, any level of learning in XML is better than nothing.
