misinformation, Re: markup language, implied violence
@kurtm The spec term for the so-called "angle brackets" is, of course, thorns.
Each element name and attributes are surrounded by a leading thorn and a tail thorn, and the whole package is called a thorny stem. Self-closing ones are called grafted spiky stems.
Legend says there's a beautiful flower at the end of the whole three of thorny stems, but I never met anyone who adventured through it and lived to tell the tale.
