Well, entity declaration was indeed another function that I miss. I was used to
Waterloo Script ('70s) IBM Script & DCF ('80s), Bookmaster ('90s). All of them
provide include mechanisms and entity decaration. That allowed me to keep source
code really small and easy to maintain. I really cannot understand why such
useful features are totally ignored in modern tag languages.
