I've just downloaded it, but have yet to test-drive it.

First comment: looks like an interesting project, and one that's been
(low) on my wishlist for *years*!  Thank you.

Second comment: As a pedant and a perfectionist, I am uneasy at the
hardwired lists of elements and attributes, with no reference I can see
(at a first glance - so ICBW) to a DTD.  That's not to detract from what
you have done, of course, and I suspect it would be rather hard to do
better at the particular problem you've set yourself.

Third comment: [not until I've tried it]
