Oh dear. You should tell that to whoever wrote this section:

Well, I don't suggest anywhere that using hTurtle become a well-used
means of providing rich semantics to HTML documents. But I do contend
that it works, even if just as a demonstration.

There's no need to continue with it since it's already complete,
modulo adding the functionality requested by Tom Morris and Danny
Ayers which I had myself been contemplating. The addition of such a
functionality will be predicated on some instance of use, of course.

As for the name, someone on IRC suggested "T┬Ártle" which I thought was
brilliant.
