Abstract

Hypertext Markup Language (HTML) may be current lingua franca of the World Wide Web, but it is poorly suited for exchanging multidimensional data for any kind, including materials property data. XML, or eXtensible Markup Language, provides for the introduction of domain-specific tags that convey meaning and structure to data. We shall describe the goals and genesis of MatML, which merges materials property terminology and XML syntax to convey both meaning and structure in materials data to facilitate its exchanges.
