It is correct that LaTeX-Like syntax with discipline can
be used to write an instance under an XML document type.
(This is implemented in the GELLMU project.)

A somewhat less-disciplined LaTeX-Like syntax can be used
to write an instance under an SGML document type that is
capable of being automatically transformed to a closely
related XML document type.

Aside from the "comfort" of LaTeX-like notation, in both
cases one big advantage is the possibility of emulating
\newcommand, including \newcommand with arguments, in
pre-processing.  E.g., when writing for HTML


Additionally and optionally, in this context an SGML (or
XML) element having a fixed sequence of subelements can be
spawned from a LaTeX-like command having positional
