Originally YAML was said to mean Yet Another Markup Language, 
because it was released in an era that saw a proliferation of 
markup languages for presentation and connectivity (HTML, XML, 
SGML, etc). Its initial name was intended as a tongue-in-cheek 
reference to the technology landscape, referencing its purpose as 
a markup language with the yet another construct, but it was then 
repurposed as YAML Ain't Markup Language, a recursive acronym, to 
distinguish its purpose as data-oriented, rather than document
