    Elements can be parents of other elements and/or attributes and can be repeated within the same level of an XML document. They also usually have start and end tags. An element would look like:Image

    we are using Elements as nodes.
    we are using Attributes inside the nodes
    Example:

    1. <student sex="male">Bidyasagar</student>

    In the above example is an element
    and sex=”male” is atribute.

    Elements can be defined to be in a certain order, while attributes can appear in any order

    Elements can occur more than once (repeating) within the same level, while attributes can only appear once within the same level

    Elements can contains another element but attributes won't.
