IMHO we should do away with custom DTDs and only use (X)HTML(2) as a 
basic source format. We should use divs or looser character conventions 
to rework our FAQ, status, etc formats. In this way they become 
automatically editable in htmltextarea.

IMHO the basic site.xml format has to be rediscussed. Could you 
highlight the differences with sitetree.xml for us?
