I think RDF would be the best solution to this, a much richer syntax can be provided in this way and I believe it is already in place.

(I'm no RDF expert)

>     <!-- and the following only about the quote -->
>     <meta id="AndyQuote">
>       <meta name="author">Andy Warhol</meta>
>       <meta name="DC.Language">en-us</meta>
>       <meta name="DC.Title">THE Philosophy of Andy Warhol</meta>
>       <meta name="chapter">4 - Beauty</meta>
>       <meta name="page">71</meta>
>     </meta>
>   </head>

>   <body>

>         The most beautiful thing in Florence is McDonald's.
>         Pecking and Moscow don't have anything beautiful yet.
