To my own opinion:
1. As exchange protocol between two different RDBMS or RDBMS and some
other system - it's quite easy to make an XML document from sql queries
and then send it to other DB, parse and insert or whatever .....
2. As an neutral data format for later presentation(s) on web or
whatever. You make an XML from RDBMS, some other sources (look 1),
proprietary systems and transform through usage of XSL(T) to HTML,
WML, PDF, text and possibly other formats and shows - :).
3. As developer for web - to parralerizxe work of developers and
deszigners in team - on given xml (dtd) one builts design (presentation) and
at the same time others make an interface to DB to get data and make

In common there is no difference between DB and XML - it's different
