Mark-up language:
The mark-up language is not based on one of the standard mark-up languages as it was felt that they are lacking in expressive power. Instead it is based on logic as an annotation language.

Existence of annotation tools:
Tractor (developed at Göteborg University): works on iX-Window UNIX and Power Macs

Used in the SLSA system.
