RE: [xml-dev] Text Markup Part II

< lots of text omitted>

>>> A) "Marking up bits of text where needed"

By this I am referring to an extension from manual markup.
Like say a term paper where the teacher has circled a few words and "X"'d out another and written on the top "Good Job".
Or a photocopy of a manuscript or actual book with margin notes.

Similarly I am *imagining* that Text markup may have started with a similar ancestry.   That the whole document wasn't taken to be say an "XML Syntax for a Document"
but rather an existing document with a few tags thrown in to add annotation.
