would love to be wrong on this though, and i would really like to work
on such a parser.
Since you appear to be the person sleeping with the parser this month
(:-), I'll direct this question to you:
Just how complex is it?
I'd like to get maybe 75-80% of the pertinent parts of the parser glued
into WebGUI as a replacement for it's current article markup
facilities, but that will entail rewriting it in perl.
Is that even remotely practical-sounding?
