# OutlineText (lightweight markup language)

Published:
Modified:

OutlineText is a lightweight markup language that has been developed to make the outline of a sentence easier to understand at the plain text stage. Unlike other lightweight markup languages (Markdown, AsciiDoc, ReStructuredText, …), the indentation represents the hierarchical structure of the text. This makes the hierarchical structure of the text easier to understand visually.
