There is a red radio button at the top left of the Forum page, labelled XML. What is XML and how is it used?

It's a link for RSS Readers (news feeds).

If you use MyYahoo or an RSS Reader like Pluck for IE (they might have a Firefox version too) or the Firefox Addon or one of the stand-alone RSS news readers (Google free RSS readers), then you can add the forum feed to the reader by right clicking on the XML button and selecting "Copy URL".

For the average forum member, it won't mean a thing. It just delivers up an XML page consistent with the RSS ("Really Simple Syndication") format.
