How many kinds of epigenetic markers are there?

The Naked Genetics podcast carried a story about methylation as an epigenetic marker. A later story in the same episode on Rett's syndrome implied that phosphorylation is an epigenetic maker. I also heard a geneticist talking about acetylation of DNA. Could the podcast address how these epigenetic markers relate to each other, and are there any more?
