Hi, well Joel answered the other parts very broad and I agree with him on these. As the above one was my saying I'm going to answer this one: I'm using make-doc-pro within my current project and the project manager uses it too. It's not easy to get people used to the fact that they don't have a WYSIWYG program like Word anymore. It took me some time until he agreed to use make-doc-pro. I agree with you about the needed syntax and that it should be as small and easy as possible. On a daily base I can see how hard it is for those people to even remember the heading syntax, which you can see... using whitspaces might be more dumb-user compatible but as Joel wrote, IMO it's not possible to make it unambigous. So using a logical delimiter character it shouldn't be to hard to remember... Robert
