corresponds to "programming" in a language (in that a grammar, however
complicated, can be constructed to model it: I suppose this is an
implication of Church's Thesis).  While true, that viewpoint deprives
"programming" of its specific meaning; it makes "programming
language"=="markup language"=="interaction modeling language".  It
ignores that a markup language is designed to be data with processing
instructions embedded, while a programming language is processing
instuctions with data embedded.

Of course, there are middle grounds: there are data-ish programming
languages such as LISP, and programmish DTDs such as ISMID.

If you are looking at making programming languages in XML, look at
ISMID, which is a compiled format for IETMS (Interactive Electronic
Technical Manuals).
You can see it at the US Navy site (www.ietm.net) or (better) at the ISO
then go "documents" then search for "MID" (remember to click the "Search
by title" button") then clock on document 7, "Revised Text of MID".
