RE: [xml-dev] Is "markup" a noun or a verb? Do you "markup data" or "wrap data in tags"?

So where does the pre-defined schema, the contract, the design based on
sample or use cases fit in, Deb?

Do we tag text or apply markup?

1) "markup" is a noun, "mark up" is a verb (as is "mark down")

2) I have seen "tagging" defined as

  - applying markup to text
  - inserting tags into text
  - surrounding text with tags

and we are back where Roger started.
