it behaves as expected. I had to both tinker a bit with the grammar, and resolve some abiguity
afterwards in the xsl processing (it is impossible for the tokeniser to know that a ':' at
the end of a word is *not* a term definition separator, so I had to reconnect it to the preceding
text if it was not inside an already established definition list).

Nice. The power of open source development.

Last night i was just about to help with the deployment
