I am of course.

Just to make sure: there is no DocBook envolved at all?
I would love to see DocBook at the core.

And you regard the file format, that "embraces" the articles (DocBook?!?),
as nice enough?

I mean, I am sure, it must actually be nice enough, if it's Dave Pawson's work.

Whatever grammar you are using,
I guess we can derive RNC from that,
which will enable my happy authoring in emacs with nxml-mode.

If I create an article (for the time being I asssume a DocBook article in one HTML chunk),
how much extra work is it around that?
do I have to manually keep redundant information like the article title and its creation DateTime?

Can we get away from that sort of redundancy?

You are a bright guy, that deserves my admiration.
I am only asking silly questions and creating cheaky requests.

So I am looking forward to any news from you.

Kind regards,
pls don't reply privately!
pls don't regard this Hun as rough!
