Are the .cfg files really XML?

The .cfg files LOOK like they could be XML (with tags and all) but I need to be certain what language they're written in. (I need to know what color scheme to use for them.)

While they don't completely follow the standards of XML written by the W3C (they don't have to since they're not being used for the web), the format is indeed XML.

Thank you. Smile
Geany lists cfgs as Config files, which is completely different from XML files (if you go by the cfgs for Geany, for example). I'll just edit filetype_extensions.conf to make cfgs count as XML to Geany.
