hypertext markup language - der bastard aller sgml kinder
etwas dreckig und verunstaltet von diversen webdesignern und browser-produzenten - aber immer noch bewaehrt - http://www.w3.org/MarkUp/ - "HTML - the HyperText Markup Language - is the lingua franca for publishing on the World Wide Web. Having gone through several stages of evolution, today's HTML has a wide range of features reflecting the needs of a very diverse and international community wishing to make information available on the Web. HTML 4.0, created by W3C, became a Recommendation in December 1997. A revision, HTML 4.01 was published in December 1999."
