From The Free On-line Dictionary of Computing (18 March 2015) :

  markup
  
      In computerised document preparation, a method of adding
     information to the text to indicate the logical components of a
     document, instructions for layout of the text on the page or other
     information which can be interpreted by some automatic system.
  
     For example, HTML (Hypertext Markup Language) adds tags to the
     text to indicate the appearance and behaviour it should have when
     displayed by a web browser.  E.g.:
  
      This is bold text.
  
      This">http://foldoc.org/">This is a link to FOLDOC.
  
     Other examples of markup languages are troff, SGML (on which
     HTML was based) and XML.
