How do you say "Markup" in French?

Answer: Balisage (root: balise - beacon, buoy, sign). I'm strongly considering going to the 2009 Balisage: The Markup Conference in Montreal in August 11-14. For many years, this was known as "Extreme Markup", an XML geekfest (and I mean that in the nicest way) held yearly in Canada. This is an event the draws the greatest minds of the XML world to wax theoretical and practical. The lineup for 2009 is quite impressive. And how can you not want to visit historic, scenic Montreal? (List time I was there I was 10 years old and I have the pictures to prove it.) Now if only my passport renewal arrives in time....
