The X:ID system is composed of a Editor and a Browser. The Editor is used to create and edit keys. The Browser is used to run them. X:ID is an XML-based identification and diagnostic key software system. It allows users to create their own web-based diagnostic or identification keys and run them over locally or over the web. The XML-based format is combined with the eXtensible Style Sheet Transformation (XSLT) markup to allow developers to tailor the look of their keys.
