Maybe it's time to propose reStructuredText support. Andreas did some
work to add reStructuredText to Zope 2.7, but I don't know if his work
has been officially accepted, nor if it's really flexible enough for
reST. Richard Jones' ZReST document has some odd behaviors (certain
reStructuredText rules don't work) that I was somehow able to duplicate
when monkey patching CMF to allow text-handling via small Handler
Anyways, it's rules are much clearer. Like you, I still get surprised
by STX-NG's indentation rules. And how long have we been using it? I
still can't get a code snippet right on first try. Ugh.
