General Purpose, Lightweight, and Content Syndication Markup Languages

This is a partial list of markup languages. The links pointed to are the most authoritative links I could find on each particular markup language. Note that I chose only the more popular markup languages for each category in order to give you an idea of the scope of use of markup languages.

General purpose markup languages

Lightweight markup language - Uses very simple syntax since they are designed for very simple text editors.

Content syndication markup languages - We are very familiar with the first two since it is what’s mostly used for web feeds.
