9.9. Synchronized Multimedia Integration Language (SMIL)

SMIL was designed for visually annotating videos, adding layers of content customized to the specific locale and preferences of each viewer without altering the video itself [SMIL].

SMIL 2.0, released in August 2001, specifies a collection of reusable modules of animation, layout, and synchronization, which can be independently implemented and used in other languages.
