Most Web and legacy paper-based documents are available in human comprehensible text form, not readily accessible to or understood by computer programs. Here we investigate an approach to amalgamate XML technology with programming languages for representational purposes. Specifically, we propose a modular technique to embed machine-processable semantics into a text document with tabular data via annotations, and evaluate it vis a vis document querying, manipulation, and integration. The
