Mallard is an XML language. Similar to DocBook, it defines the logical structure of a document. The documents are then displayed in a help browser, which creates links between the documents. Concepts such as guides and topics provide means for reaching help pages in different ways.
- DocBook — platform independent, XML-based language used to mark the meanings of terms
- reStructuredText — lightweight markup language intended to be easy to read in source format
- Microsoft Compiled HTML Help — mainly used by Windows applications
