 I asked for inventing new name of the option that will replace HTMLSRC_*
stuff used for "stylesheet definition". HTMLSRC_*_XFORM were not in my plans.
 I said that Tom should choose the best name and modify patch to reflect that
name before applying it. I think that this will be very easy for Tom.

  But seems you know everything about them, so you don't count :-)

  Yes, ability to specify such things would be good.
  You'd better to give more verbose examples, like "<b>Note</b>" - ie put
everything together (if you did, I would understood you immediately). Using
entities (for repersenting some funny symbols that are in Unicode) would be
nice too.

  Yes, something more powerful (with ability to insert text) would be useful.
But IMO we could extend syntax of my mini-HTML to allow text, ie 
span.my_style "!" !span b i "text" !b !i
 - ie text is in double quotes, quotes could be escaped using a slash. The
use of that syntax disallows any abuses, IMO.
  And you are right, I didn't have anything in mind except psrc when inventing
the syntax for psrc stylesheet.

 OK, I will do this (documentation) later, when I'll have time. But seems
nobody tried to understand that documentation - that upsets me.
