Graphics Device Markup Language (GDML)

GDML is an XML application language that describes exact page layout information for graphics devices such as printers.

While HTML is great for describing pages viewed on screen, the same pages when printed from a browser often vary significantly from one browser to the next or even one version of the same browser to the next.

GDML provides a simple language for exacting control over font face, size, and placement. In addition, GDML implements features which HTML does not attempt to address, such as vector graphics.

The GDML Tag Reference is written in GDML and is a good example of GDML code.
