HTML Alternatives

    HTML is described as 'is the standard markup language used to create web pages and its elements form the building blocks of all websites' and is an website in the Development category. There are three alternatives to HTML, not only websites but also apps for a variety of platforms, including Linux, Mac, Windows and HTML. The best alternative is Markdown, which is both free and Open Source. Other great sites and apps similar to HTML are WHATWG (Free, Open Source) and ReAdABLE Human Format (Free, Open Source).
