1. A simple markup language intended for quick conversion of
existing text to hypertext.
2. A method of marking common words to call attention to the
fact that they are being used in a nonstandard, ironic, or
humorous way. Originated in the fannish catchphrase "Bheer
is the One True Ghod!" from decades ago. H-infix marking of
"Ghod" and other words spread into the 1960s counterculture
via underground comix, and into early hackerdom either from
the counterculture or from SF fandom (the three overlapped
heavily at the time). More recently, the h infix has become
an expected feature of benchmark names (Dhrystone, Rhealstone,
etc.); this follows on from the original Whetstone (the name
of a laboratory) but may have been influenced by the
fannish/counterculture h infix.
