Seems to set the value for a named "mark", used in things like headers and footers. Apparently related to the TeX primitive [http://www.tug.org/utilities/plain/cseq.html#mark-rp \mark], which "specifies text which should be ''marked''," which helps determine the ''guide words'' at the top of each page.

Syntax

Description

(I'm filling this in with guesses/inferences because I can't find any better information.)

Seems to set the value for a named "mark", used in things like headers and footers. Apparently related to the TeX primitive \mark, which "specifies text which should be marked," which helps determine the guide words at the top of each page.

Example

\marking[headername]{Other Languages}

For a more complete example, see \getmarking.
