Formatted Text - Markup Languages

Markup Languages

Formatting can be marked by tags distinguished from the body text by special characters, such as angle brackets in HTML. For example, this text:

The dog is classified as Canis lupus familiaris in taxonomy.

is marked up in HTML thus:

The dog is classified as Canis lupus familiaris in taxonomy.

The italicised text is enclosed by an opening and a closing italics tag. In LaTeX, the text would be marked up like this:

The dog is classified as textit{Canis lupus familiaris} in taxonomy.

Markup languages can be implemented with any text editor, needing no special software.

Famous quotes containing the word languages:

    Science and technology multiply around us. To an increasing extent they dictate the languages in which we speak and think. Either we use those languages, or we remain mute.
