The ALICE software implements AIML (Artificial Intelligence Markup Language), a non-standard evolving markup language for creating chat robots. The primary design feature of AIML is minimalism. Compared with other chat robot languages, AIML is perhaps the simplest. The pattern matching language is very simple, for example permitting only one wild-card ('*') match character per pattern. AIML is an XML language, implying that it obeys certain grammatical meta-rules. The choice of XML syntax permits integration with other tools such as XML editors. Another motivation for XML is its familiar look and feel, especially to people with HTML experience.

AlcoveBook DTD and stylesheets is a strict subset of the DocBook DTD. The ultimate goal is to provide a series of DTDs for enterprise use, commercial proposal, whitepaper, etc. For now, this is one single SGML DTD. The stylesheets are usable with both DocBook and AlcoveBook. They include a set of extensions over Norman Walsh's modular docbook stylesheets (docbook-dsssl), and a book- like layout for articles.
