The following tables compare general and technical information for a number of document-markup languages. Please see the individual markup languages' articles for further information. Wireless Markup Language (WML) Hypertext documents XML: Tag Yes Yes Language Major purpose Based on Markup type Comparison of e-book formats; Comparison.   This article is about document markup languages used to write text documents, such as books and articles published on the net. There are other markup languages used to describe specific data, such as mathematical formulas, images, and geographic information, but these are . To be able to understand an XML document, one needs to know what the structure of the document is and what tags it contains. Such information about the structure of each document type is stated in a Document Type Definition (DTD). The notion of a DTD was first introduced in an influential markup language called SGML, of which XML can be considered a lightweight version. In computer text processing, a markup language is a system for annotating a document in a way that is syntactically distinguishable from the text, meaning when the document is processed for display, the markup language is not shown, and is only used to format the text. The idea and terminology evolved from the "marking up" of paper manuscripts (i.e., the revision instructions by editors.

QuickStudy: Markup languages use sets of embedded tags or labels to characterize text elements within a document so as to indicate their appearance, function, meaning or context. Originally used.   Dependence on a single. Inflexible document type (HTML). It allows the flexibility to develop the user defined document types. It also provides a robust, non-proprietary and verifiable file for storage and transmission of text and data both on and off the web and it removes the complexity options of SGML, by making it easier.   Markup Syntax. Markup uses simple Markdown-like character delimiter syntax with custom extensions. There are four types of elements: Single line elements format a line of text such as creating a heading.. Multiline elements format multiple lines of text such as creating lists or callouts.. Span elements format a span of characters such as adding emphasis. It was created to ensure that all browsers implemented a common scripting language rather than using customized, incompatible variations. ript code in an HTML document .

This allows an author to generate a visually pleasing document, but the markup is specific to the word processing program being used. GENERIC MARKUP Generic or generalized markup is the term that describes the process of assigning generic names to markup. Figure 3 is an example of a generalized markup applied to the same text as Figure 2. XHTML Extensible Hypertext Markup Language File. The XHTML is a text based file format with markup in the XML, using a reformulation of HTML These files are well suited to be open or viewed in a web browser. XHTML was designed to be more structured, less scripting, generic; using all the existing facilities of XML and more device independent. The SGML language can be used to express any number of DTDs. Likewise, each DTD can be used as the basis for many documents of the same general type, with each document being an instance—an example—of the type described by its set of similar documents can be considered a document type to be modeled using SGML DTD rules: love letters, project plans, product catalogs, . XML Document Structure. The XML Recommendation states that an XML document has both logical and physical structure. Physically, it is comprised of storage units called entities, each of which may refer to other entities, similar to the way that include works in the C language. Logically, an XML document consists of declarations, elements, comments, character references, and processing.
