problems, or intriguing solutions to problems related to the design and use
of markup, markup languages, or markup tools; if you want to know what the
leading theorists of markup are thinking; if you are the house markup expert
and want to spend time with your kind, then you should plan on attending
Extreme Markup Languages® 2007.

Topics at Extreme 2007 include:
New: International Workshop on Markup of Overlapping Structures
XML and SGML have revolutionized the representation of structured
information, but not all information structures map easily into
systems of hierarchically nested elements. Markup of overlapping
structures is a perennially hot topic, reinvented and reimagined
as often as it is solved.
This full-day workshop will bring together the proponents of some of
the major proposals for markup, representation, extraction, display,
and validation of semantic overlap to summarize the systems they are
developing and discuss topics of common interest.
About the Conference
Extreme is an open marketplace of theories about markup and all the things
that they support or that support them: the difficult cases in publishing,
linguistics, transformation, searching, indexing, and storage and retrieval.
At Extreme, markup enthusiasts gather each year to trade in ideas, not to
convince management to buy new stuff. At Extreme we push the edges of markup
theory & practice.
