An example of XML: Extensible Markup Language

In computer text processing, a markup language is one that annotates the content without changing it. The text written in a markup language is not usually visible in a graphic representation of the content, but instead is used to structure it and organise its appearance.

Some common examples of markup languages are XML, HTML, Markdown and Wikitext, the syntax Mediawiki (and this wiki) uses to format a page.
