  • The Historical Event Markup and Linking Project [1] generates SVG timelines, maps and animated maps from documents conforming to its XML markup language for historical events. The markup language, defined in XML Schemas [2], associates events with persons, locations, and keywords, employs multiple calendrical schemes and is multilingual. There is a Heml xhtml language available, too. The project's past five years of development are recorded in its SVN server [3]. RDF/Heml ideas were presented at the WWW2006 conference [4].
