Xml is a meta-language like sgml, not a specific tag language like html it shares sgml's abstract model while removing abbreviatory features and simplifying parsing it shares sgml's abstract model while removing abbreviatory features and simplifying parsing.
Html 10 was written in english text and is neither sgml or xml html 2 - 4 are written in sgml and feature sgml flexibilities, such as uppercase tags or start tags without a matching closing tag xhtml 10 is an sgml defined form of the html language with some extended requirements to gleam progressive compatibility towards xml syntax.
