   RE: [xml-dev] Source Code Markup Language?

[ Lists Home | Date Index | Thread Index ]

We did that for the MID (metafile for interactive documents) 
in two versions.  The original was C++ in markup, moreorless, 
the second was the predecessor to XAML, XForms, etc.   That 
was an SGML language.

It works.  I'm not sure what value such things have outside 
the usual things markup helps at the cost of verbosity and 
the need to map to an ontology at some point.
