Thus warned, we embark on a short article in a Society journal about Standard Generalized Markup Language (SGML). Although you may have never heard of it, SGML is an integral part of your professional life. It's used to print and archive OSA's and other AIP journals; many government and academic organizations use it to disseminate and archive documents. One SGML application, hypertext markup language (HTML), underlies most of the Web pages you view.
