wml is the langauge behind wap (wireless application protocol)
wml is Wirelss Markup Langauge and is in a way similar to html - only it used on wireless devices.

Considering that until i read your explanation i was wondering: wtf is wap? I would have to admit that i chose 'wtf is wtl'. Apparently i'm not alone though. It actually appears quite crowded over here in the confused section.

I have never used it or written it. Is it similar to HTML in any ways?

wml is similar to html in th respect that it is formatting language rather than a programming language. xml is very versatile and can be used to program.

read the spec at the link posted above
