Chapter 3: SGML and HTML DTD
SGML (Standard Generalized Markup Language) is a formal system designed for building text markup languages, HTML being one of them. Learn the foundations of SGML to see how understanding SGML ideology and design principles may aid you in learning and applying HTML.

XML (eXtensible Markup Language) is a simple and compact subset of SGML designed specifically for use on the Internet in the way that HTML is currently used. This new project of W3C is gaining momentum at a surprising rate, and everybody seriously concerned with HTML may want to check it out.
