Chemical Markup Language (CML)

© Peter Murray-Rust, 1997

Chemical Markup Language has been designed to support management of molecular information on networks. Derived from SGML, it provides a simple yet powerful way to manage a very wide range of problems with a single language. At a simple level CML can be thought of as 'HTML with Chemistry added' and no special knoeldge is required.These pages provide a tour through its features with special emphasis on electronic publishing.
