Ok, I will have a look at XHTML2 and start figuring out how to implement 
the feature. Right now, I am developing and maintaining a custom

I will also have a look at the plugin mechanism in Forrest. It should be 
relatively easy to do since I already know many of the problems that I 
will encounter.
