What's the pay? ;)

In order to work with any .NET technologies, you will need to have some understanding of XML. All the project structures and configuration files for .NET applications are XML so it'll be hard to avoid. If you have some HTML experience, you pratically know XML. After all, HTML is actually the precursor to XHTML which is really a strict implementation of XML.

But Planoie if u go thru the requirement of the company, u would come to know that they have not specifically mentioned that they want someone also with a experience of XML. Had they been requiring some one with a experience of XML they would have very specifically mentioned it, Dont u think so ??.

When I interviewed with my current employer (and many other jobs I've had) they have never explicitly told me that I must know how to speak and write in English. Many "skills" will be implied. .NET is based heavily on XML, you really can't know .NET without knowing XML.

Not only .NET, but also Microsoft Biztalk makes heavy use of XML. Just like .NET, you can't really use those technologies if you don't have at least a basic understanding of XML.
