markup (punctuational)

Punctuational. Punctuational markup consists of the use of a closed set of marks to provide primarily syntactic information about written utterances. Punctuation has been under study for hundreds of years and is considered part of our writing system. Because punctuation is relatively stable, generally familiar to authors, and very frequent in documents, the usual expectation is that authors will punctuate their document files just as if they were typing.
