Which version of the _xmlplus package?  I currently use 0.7.  It may be
that faqdom uses an old interface that is not supported anymore in newer

It shouldn't be difficult to add XHTML output.  It already supports both
plain text and SGML and XHTML output would work very similar to the SGML

Not that I'm particularly attached to faqdom :).  One of the reasons I

That's a coincidence.  No doubt partly because rst is meant to be
similar to common plain text formatting conventtions
