CAN I, or can I NOT, do the following?

    <render tag="COMMENT" style="i">
    <render tag="FUNCTION" style="b,u">

    <pre><code>
      <COMMENT>/* foo.c, written by me */</COMMENT>

      int <FUNCTION>main</FUNCTION>(int argc, char *argv[])
      {
          return 0; <COMMENT>/* all done! */</COMMENT>
      }
    </code></pre>

I kind of thought that was the whole point of the <RENDER> thing when I
saw it.  Am I out to lunch, or is there just some "tag / element"
distinction I missed completely when reading your quote, above?
