Hi Bruce,

many thanks for your advice.

This could be a good way to practice things that I’m not used to.

After all, the things you can do with pandoc are rather limited when
considered from XML.

Many thanks for your tip, but I’m afraid this isn’t my cup of tea.

But this reminded me of the Guidelines from the Text Encoding Initiative

The PDF version of these Guidelines are roughly over 2000 pages.

It could be also a good exercise (and also demanding).

Many thanks for your help,
