Markup language

Impact Centre of Competence

A markup language is a system for annotating a text or other knowledge resource in a manner that is syntactically distinguishable from the text or main content of the resource.
Electronic markup languages generally distinguish content from content type (title, author, data, etc.) by presenting the content type as standardised bracketed tabs. See also: Metadata; Extensible Markup Language (xml)
