        [MCepl]  That's my currente state of the nation (however, the
HTML browser is MS IE 3.02, being still a victim of M$ NT and M$ Win

        [MCepl]  About reasons why I do not want to use LOUT (with all
due respect to Lout -- I do not really to flame it, it's a real and nice
piece of software), I have written in my previous email.

        [MCepl]  If SGML is supserset of HTML and Jade is able to
process SGML, would it be possible to utilize Jade for HTML processing?
How about CSS?

        [MCepl]  I have to use M$ Win NT at work, so I use M$ Win 3.11
at home as well (I would have to buy new computer to be able to use
Linux -- currently I have 386SX/40MHz/4 MB RAM/170 MB HDD).

myself. :-)
