From A to <A>Keywords in HTML and Writing, a proposed collection edited by Bradley Dilger and Jeff Rice, seeks essays that consider the cultural, ideological, and rhetorical forces shaping the relationships between writing and the mark-up and scripting languages that make up the web, such as HTML and CSS.
Markup tags will be used as keywords. Following the keywords genre, essays should focus on a single tag or unit of markup, and break down that tag’s etymological, historical, social, and cultural meanings.
