A markup language, known as SGML, developed for the design of languages for the formatting, storage, and access of large corpora of documents. It is a very large and complex language, and the standard reference work on it runs to 662 pages of text. It has been a very successful technology in that it has been extensively adopted by large organizations which generate voluminous quantities of documentation, such as IBM and the US Department of Defense. It is included in this work since it is the parent of the Hypertext Markup Language.
