Funny, this is the solution that I intend to adopt for all my document
processing as soon as I finish my thesis. (because I may have to write the
validating XML parser myself, but them's the breaks...). I'm not interested
in working with the vagaries of SGML glitches, except when I'm being paid
for it, but I would dearly like to use content markup all the time.
