|hypertext markup language: a text description language that is used for electronic publishing, esp on the World Wide Web|
for a new paragraph, .. for bold text,
for preformated text,
HTML supports some standard SGML national characters and other non-ASCII characters through special escape sequences, e.g. "é" for a lower case 'e' with an acute accent. You can sometimes get away without the terminating semicolon but it's bad style.
Most systems will ignore the case of tags and attributes but lower case should be used for compatibility with XHTML.
The World-Wide Web Consortium (W3C) is the international standards body for HTML.
Latest version: XHTML 1.0, as of 2000-09-10.
Character escape sequences (http://w3.org/hypertext/WWW/MarkUp/ISOlat1.html).
