Matt, it's basically a matter of the history of computing at this
point. Unfortunately, these days (when XML is considered old) few
people care about such ancient technologies.

The best historical reference I've found is a pamphlet published by
the Teletype Corporation in 1963 (Editors: R. A. Nelson; K. M. Lovitt,
Editor; October 1963; Teletype Corporation, 5555 West Touhy Avenue,
Skokie, Illinois). I found a scanned-in copy here:

Or did you want something more modern?
