Broadcast Markup Language
Broadcast Markup Language, or BML, is an XML-based standard developed by Japanese ARIB association as a data broadcasting specification for digital television broadcasting. It was finalized in 1999, becoming ARIB STD B24 "Data Coding and Transmission Specification for Digital Broadcasting".
Example BML header:
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="EUC-JP" ?> <!DOCTYPE bml PUBLIC "+//ARIB STD-B24:1999//DTD BML Document//JA" "bml_1_0.dtd"> <?bml bml-version="1.0" ?>
Since version 1.0 in 1999, BML standard has gone through several revisions, and as of 2007[update], it is on version 5.0. However due to a large installed user base of receivers which only support the original 1.0 specification, broadcasters are not able to introduce new features defined in later revisions.
