XML can be used for both static and dynamic data.
For example, static data can be your menu with options, static content, or email addresses.
For example, dynamic data would pull from a database or other datasources such as web services and store the data in xml format and later parsed out.

Ways to use XML in websites Building
There are at least 3 kinds of ways to use xml:
1) Please use XmlDataSource to bind to a data presentation control to show xml contents.
2) Please use XmlDocument or XDocument to fetch out specific values from the xml nodes and do what you want.
3) Please use DataTable.WriteXml/ReadXml to serialze the xml contents and read them in to do things.
