How's this: The Extensible Markup Language (XML) specification defines the syntax rules for a family of markup languages loosely referred to as "XML", as well as a system for declaring the selection and ordering of the markup elements which may appear in a particular markup language which is a member of the family. I think that's accurate but it feels kind of long and klunky. Anyone got any polish to apply? -T
