ArchieML (or "AML") was created at The New York Times to make it easier to write and edit structured text on deadline that could be rendered in web pages, or more specifically, rendered in interactive graphics.

Example from the web:
[days] * Sunday note: holiday! * Monday * Tuesday Whitespace is still fine around the '*' * Wednesday * Thursday Friday! * Friday * Saturday [] [+books] kicker: Books you should read score: ★★★★★!!! title: Wuthering Heights author: Emily Brontë title: Middlemarch author: George Eliot score: ★★★★☆ []

AML ignores all whitespace not within a value. We believe this makes it easier for non-programmers to use, and is essential for use in environments with non-monospaced fonts, like in Google Documents.
