The reason I did not include support for Structured Text was situations
where one might want to include examples like:
... this is an example::
<!--# var title-->

last I checked Zope would not render the above correctly. If I do some
hackery I might get it to work but then I still have the problem where one
might mix html and dtml in non-example sections. I will play around with
your read_raw() suggestion.

If you have any ideas let me know.

I really want to have Structured Text support.


PS Do you think is too much to ask for people to declare when an entry is
in structured text? ie 
<answer fmt='structured-text'>A beer</answer>
I wanted to make the submission as easy as possible.
