XML layout and application scripting language

Entity is an application framework built around XML. Its core is an engine that lets users to create object oriented, event driven applications with XML trees. Users create tags in XML which can be used to represent any object. We have used this engine to create a set of tags for the GTK+ toolkit (among other things), allowing users to create graphical applications using XML, and an embedded scripting language.
