... which is why those of us you sneer at so superciliously use simple
text editors and roll our own SGML by hand, Gary.

You makes your choice and you takes your pick -- either spend weeks
learning how to use arcane proprietary WP package gizmos; or learn the ins
and outs of using a complex DTD.

In neither option does the computer do the "grunt" work -- as ever, it's
human memory that bears the strain. (It's called: "learning a new skill",
Gary -- a useful trick to acquire in life.)
