5 XML Extensible Markup Language
XML was derived from SGML, which was Generalized Markup Language before it
became a standard. The term "markup" and the acronym GML were chosen
deliberately to fit the initials of the co-developers (Charles Goldfarb, Ed
Mosher, Ray Lorie).
Considering Charles Goldfarb's contribution, it's rather ironic the G was
dropped from subsequent names such as HTML and XML.
