    Great thoughts, Markus.

    You're right about stuff like SVG. Tree-editing
    wouldn't help much. Some sort of encapsulation
    mechanism is necessary that says "render if able".

    For more vanilla data trees and documents, though,
    I think that generalized editing is still conceivable
    -- especially if a few basics like <i> and <b> are

    The DTD might then include the style definitions
    I alluded to saying, in effect: <def> == <i>.

    The editor might then have standard DTDs for common
    file types, but be able to do a reasonable job with
    even very non-standard types without a DTD, and do
    a great job if the DTD were available, as well.
