3.2 Brief history of HTML
IBM wanted to set documentation system in which the developers can mark the title, headings, paragraphs and font type selections in the 1980s. They came out with a set of mark up system called General Markup Language (GML). In 1986, International Standardizing organization (ISO) took up this concept and standardized it as Standard Generalized Markup Language (SGML). In 1989 Tim Berners Lee and his team in the European Laboratory for particle Physics (CERN) designed the present form of the documentation language and called it HTML.
