Theological Markup Language
From Seo Wiki - Search Engine Optimization and Programming Languages
The Theological Markup Language (ThML) is a "royalty-free" XML-based format created in 1998 by the Christian Classics Ethereal Library (CCEL) to create electronic theological texts. Other formats such as STEP and Logos Library System (LLS) were found unacceptable by CCEL as they are proprietary, prompting the creation of the new language. The ThML format borrowed elements from a somewhat similar format, the Text Encoding Initiative (TEI).
As of September 19, 2006[update], CCEL has 650 documents in this format. The advantage of using an XML-based format is that a ThML text can be converted into HTML by using an XSLT stylesheet. Also, conversion to PDF and RTF can be done with standard XML conversion tools.
