Because I needed one for ini format data: But I suspect that wasn't your main point :-) I can sympathise with some weariness at the thought of yet another text markup dialect language. It seems at times as if everyone in the world has invented their own. (And yes, I invented my own too. I'm as culpable as everyone else). But there are reasons for that. Including that different people are happy using different mark up languages. If you check out the contributed discussion posts and script documentation at You should spot from the telltale signs that people are using at least five different mark-up languages. And all of them have ML to HTML converters, and is happy to accept contributions in any of them: it's the client's choice, not the servers. And if / when someone writes a REBOL YAML, then I hope they'll let us use that at the Library too. Sunanda.
