Relation between HTML and SGML


What Is the relation between HTML and SGML?



SGML (Standard Generalized Markup Language) is a metalanguage in which one can define markup languages, like HTML, for documents. SGML is a descendant of IBM's Generalized Markup Language (GML), developed in the 1960s by Charles Goldfarb, Edward Mosher and Raymond Lorie (whose surname initials also happen to be GML).

HTML is not directly related to SGML. But HTML and XHTML serialization syntaxe standards are following the sample ideas of using markup tags mixed with text contents.
