I see.  The only thing I'd like to point out is that in this case wml's syntax
interfere with HTML which is the output format and which , if I am right, can
be easily used in the .wml file.  This does not make the source files clearer
and easier to understand from one hand, and should add a really sophisticated
processing into wml itself, from another.

Or am I still missing something? :)
