2.6. Text

Text-related HTML/XHTML markup tags comprise the richest set of all in the standard languages. That's because the original language—HTML—emerged as a way to enrich the structure and organization of text.

HTML came out of academia.

(ASCII text is the only universal format on the global Internet.) Multimedia integration is something of an appendage to HTML and XHTML, albeit an important one.
