The requested HTML page contains a <FORM> tag that is unusable on "Fossies" in "automatic" (rendered) mode so that page is shown as HTML source code syntax highlighting (style: standard) with prefixed line numbers. Alternatively you can here view or download the uninterpreted source code file.

   18 (but usable outside of the Gnome platform), it is free software available
   19 under the <a href="http://www.opensource.org/licenses/mit-license.html">MIT
   20 License</a>. XML itself is a metalanguage to design markup languages, i.e.
   21 text language where semantic and structure are added to the content using
   22 extra "markup" information enclosed between angle brackets. HTML is the most
   23 well-known markup language. Though the library is written in C <a href="python.html">a variety of language bindings</a> make it available in
   24 other environments.</p><p>Libxml2 is known to be very portable, the library should build and work
   25 without serious troubles on a variety of systems (Linux, Unix, Windows,
   26 CygWin, MacOS, MacOS X, RISC Os, OS/2, VMS, QNX, MVS, VxWorks, ...)</p><p>Libxml2 implements a number of existing standards related to markup

   52 Suite</a>.</p><p>To some extent libxml2 provides support for the following additional
