Configuration File Schema for the .NET Framework 

Configuration Files are standard XML files. The .NET Framework defines a set of elements that implement configuration settings. This section describes the configuration schema for the machine configuration file, application configuration files, and the security configuration file.

You need to be familiar with XML if you want to directly edit the configuration files. XML tags and attributes are case-sensitive
