Document Markup for the Web
Document markup is the process of adding codes to a document to identify the structure of a document and to specify the format in which its fragments are to appear. We will discuss two conflicting aspects — structure and appearance — in document markup. As the Internet imposes special constraints imposed on markup formats, we will reflect its influence.
In the past few years the XML format has established itself as a general basis for markup languages. As OMDoc and all mathematical markup schemes discussed here are XML applications (instances of the XML framework), we will go more into the technical details to supply the technical prerequisites for understanding the specification. We will briefly mention XML validation and transformation tools, if the material reviewed in this section is not enough, we refer the reader to [Har01].
