FML obeys the leitmotif "maximum degree of freedom" and allows restriction-free markup of documents and data:

The language FML is a powerful basic technology for the markup of texts and the structuring of data in a polyhierarchical container.

The development of FML results from practical experiences, from several deficiencies of the potent de-facto-standard XML and from current comparable approaches. The language is easy to learn, ergonomic and intuitive, and targets further development of markup languages along the evolution of data structures.
