Source code can be viewed in many ways, with each view facilitating access to different information contained within the code. We explore the role that marked-up textual views can provide in support of software comprehension and maintenance. Text has the advantages of being easily communicated, effectively manipulated with existing tools, and highly scalable. Furthermore, marked-up text models may improve comprehension by expressing information directly within the context of maintainers' focus - the source code they are manipulating. The session intends to explore the expressibility of marked-up text and its applicability in support of program comprehension tasks. Topics will include: the roles these models fulfill, their limitations, their combination, and the exploration of future research directions.
