Version sounds cool.. we could use it with CVS tokens:

<version>$Revision: 1.1 $</version>

And then perhaps add a:

<date>Date: 2002/11/07 06:37:02 $</date>

Date is much more useful than version.  It's rather annoying how Forrest
pages give no indication of how current they are.

What the heck is type? :)

I think 'note' and 'notice' are very different things. even if they
happen to share the same formatting initially.

Great, patches (whatever you think works) welcome.
