A general-purpose markup language is a markup language that is used for more than one purpose or situation. Other, more specialized domain-specific markup languages are often based upon these languages. For example, HTML is a domain-specific markup language (for webpages), and is based on the syntax of SGML, which is a general-purpose markup language.
